Herring Gull

Posted in Poetry with tags , , on November 2, 2011 by belfastdavid

I watched the seagull
strut across the beach,
gunslinger walk,
John Wayne personified.

Sized up the swan,
decided first
to make his point,

and then discretion
in the face
of superior aggression;

backed off
and walked away
but the strut remained.

Did you see that,
how I showed him  

I could almost hear him say.
