Poetry #190
(published September 2, 2004)
The Deck Doesn't Look Good
by Jonathan Hayes

When I'm home
the pigeons

try to fly
into my


bringing their omen of death,

and when I come home
after work

I find their feathers on the windowsill.

The "end" is a coloring book
slowly being filled in

by wings

outta control.
