the role of pigeons

it’s at this time
when autumn's flame
gets  blown out
snuffed to a wax
          and under the highway bridge
the glide and glaze of pigeons
shadow snuffing and 
car roar cooing
fumes like death’s seepage
an urban home’s
grey and splatter,

here the pigeons live
indefinite // anonymous
frail & glooming
they're the gerunds of our cities
             giving concrete monoliths
                              a sense of flight

Written for Bjorn’s dVerse challenge “Meet the bar with dissonance”
