Birds Wheel About [Free Verse]

a flock of pigeons
mills about in a lazy dance,
pecking and shifting 

then explode into 
panicked flapping,

as they wheel about,
gaining spontaneous unity, 
reaching investigation mode,

they bank heavily,
like a C-130 gunship --
a Puff the Magic Dragon --
pivoting onto a target
