Feeding the Gulls

Just a poem illustrating my experience with feeding seagulls.

Seagulls flying.

I throw out crumbs,

Old Wonder bread,

And they come.

 

Swooping, screaming,

Piercing cries.

Pointed beaks

And beady eyes.

 

More arrive,

Competition.

They chase away

The new addition.

 

More and more,

White, everywhere.

Wingtips brushing

By my hair.

 

Terror, wide eyes;

They’re all around.

Flapping and screaming,

The only sound.

 

Heartbeat racing,

This isn’t fun.

I drop the bread

And then I run.
