From The Guardian, EyewitnessCopious triumph overhead
the conquest of sky by sea gulls
who blend into the blue gray skies
and abruptly are everywhere.
A sneak attack on the beach head.
A monumental event – bombarding
the shoreline with an ugly grace.
Only God could engineer aerodynamics
on such a gangling bird. Feathered wings
on a lunchbox.
