Domestic Disturbance

Birds gossip among themselves

as the air grows thick with threats.

 

The adversaries circle slowly,

trying to stare each other down.

 

A low growl builds in their chests,

while squirrels scold

like exasperated mothers from high in the oak tree.

 

Fur flies and caterwauling ensues-

Morning cat fight.
