Something

Boy, I see you, turn up day after day, crouch
by the pond, assortment of snacks, hold out
a hand or stand still as air. Trackies, oversized
tee, slowly scattering feed, pigeons land on
shoulders that carry the world, there’s room
for a thing that touches and breathes. They peck
your hair, your old man on a bench watches,
chin merged with chest, look of a man who
lost something.
