flightless cormorant

wings once spread across an open ocean
now you’re all at sea
a slick-wrecked mariner
floundering in filthy lacquer
coated like a toffee apple
pitched onto a foreign shore
tarred and feathered by crude causality
frightful and forlorn

down to earth
the unhappy medium

David J Kelly
