If I Were a Bird

'AHEAD FOR PALE HEIGHTS'From Visual Counterpoint

If I were a bird I would be an albatross,
Trading the occasional supreme effort of take-off,
And all grace on landing,
For a life spent gliding over the ocean.

If I were an albatross,
I would have placed a curse on my murderers,
Leaving them becalmed,
But I am not a bird,
And I cannot fly,
Nor curse.

My murderers go free.
