By Mike O’Connell
birds fall from the sky
in recurring nightmares
as i jump from train to train
trackless over hills rolling
rummaging through lost
virtual garages wiping dust from illusive clues confusing
the past for expectations
saving cats from fires
as insects vanish in airs thin
rotating through fifty foot
webs strung from pole to pole
to pole and the bridge collapses
under the weight of people
there to see waters beneath
but the tracks remain
suspended between cameras
and seagulls dodge the
falling photos one by one
