Chicago’s Burning


Chicago, December 24/2016

Pigeon, imagine what strangers are thinking
-standing, staring.
Look! the pigeons perched in cold air,
warming their tail feathers
near a gas fire, now tail is bare.

Silly! the strangers gasp,
why do such a thing?
Then button and tighten and head towards the wind.
