some days the sea gulls fly while never seeing the sea

there are days
i feel
more like
one of those
sea gulls
you see
in a strip mall
parking lot
in a landlocked town
far
from the sea

there are days
i sit in the car
as they fly
overhead
and shit
on my windshield
while wondering
why the pea brained
little bastards
are so ineptly
lost

yet even then
i still feel
uncomfortably close
to understanding
i fear
there is something
unsettling
about this level
of distasteful
recognition
but i cannot
shake it
