I’m in my bath and see
Two seagulls dance
On the milk glass roof
Above me, their feet
Moving constantly
Trying to stay upright
On the sloping glass

I watch their
Shadows move
Stomping and bickering
Right above me

When I laugh at their antics
They are still for a moment
Then screech their dismay
As their feet push off
And they leave
For quieter places
