[A Seagull] by Lorin Ford

a seagull
claims the sandcastle …
incoming tide

long drought –
boulder lichen
holds on

cricket–
seagulls vs plovers
on the outfield

even the names
in the shade have faded –
memorial park

express train
a hag’s apparition
at the window

anzac parade –
swallows swoop over
the eternal flame
