the coast of living

the small pigeons
crowd the hand
of the middle aged woman

the small pigeons
are greedy  no matter
how much they get

they want more
climbing over her hand
and each other

upon closer examination
the woman turns out to be
younger than I thought

pregnant  infected
with the joy of new life
and still  the pigeons want more
