The Magpie

The Magpie

A Poem by Algae

Upon the steps of a fire escape
a black and white bandit
with flashes of green
ascends.
He has wings to carry him
and yet he prefers to hop
hop, hop
one step at a time,
then upwards he flutters,
alights on a railing
then leaps and falls,
mimics a swallow’s dive before he
swoops up again
to land once more on his feet,
and up the steps again he goes,
one flight higher than before.
