11 Mar 2016 – Great Chain of Feeding

Fat seagulls circle.
they remember Autumn’s drill:
show up, I’ll feed ya.

Great expectations
strong, concerning which they speak!
Yeah, bud, I hear ya.

Cold, dark, and dismal.
Once the cook flings crumbs my way,
you’ll get yours also.

Worms also worried –
now that I’ve been losing weight –
that I’ll short-change ’em.

Great chain of feeding!
Somewhere in the midnight sky
black holes are dining.
