commonwealth

a seagull throne
or just another bench
where river meets sea
momentarily Sumerian, maybe,
a bird guard flanks
watches, close with me,
clean privilege,
calm in wake of poetry,
I dream this way,
noting only slowly
it’s their bench,
they all are really,
they’re behaving
in my lack of lunch,
no, turn again, dream,
assume no airs
enshrine instead
commonwealth
