Stripped Down

The vulture is a bird capable of using all its senses to achieve all that can be completed in this life and embraces every day with its wings wide open in front of the opportunities the Sun brings to the new day.

Chimney-perched, besieged by diving swallows.
I focus, click. He swivels, gaze follows
curious, embracing. What I’m facing
an interview with death, releasing breath.

Inspired by: Interview.
