The Seabirds Fly

the air is thick with smoke
encumbered by the spray of resined goo
the seabirds challenge their wings
burning lungs and breath will choke
first one then two
the flights are low, then higher they sing
breezes change, seabirds remove your cloak
out to sea to grasp the clouds, time to renew
