A Starling and Pigeon

Art by Paul Rios


paths on a train platform

in Perpignan

I wonder how they appear

to one another

the starling darts into the rafters

while the pigeon traipses around the cement

under the benches and around lampposts

he stops and eyes me

watches the girl in white

beside me

and decides we have no food

the starling departed

long gone

blessed by the good sense

of a small life.
