And she looked at me
in doubt
I don’t know whether of my wittiness
or my reasoning
behind the retort itself –
Seagulls are a controversial
Topic in this town after all
(She had named it
Kyle) –
But I smiled because either way
It didn’t make her falter
in fact it brought momentum
into her movement and i thought
that perhaps the world wasn’t that dark
that lonely,
after all.
