Birds flocking - by Lawrence Upton

Those birds are making pictures in the sky;
forming a fist; and then a manacle;
condemning a face to burst into a skull,

bits of it, and bone fragments, curving back
to reinforce the main round changing structure
of representation and illusion,

all of it loose of ground and on the move,
itself, fantasising itself, flying,
a whole of thinking particles; so much

better at coordination than are we

- Lawrence Upton
