Mountain Birds

There were worried mountain birds
Circling in the sky
Making like they wanted
To peck out our eyes
The thunder roared
The mist concealed their approach
We cowered and held our hands
Over our exposed eyes

Reaching for our guns
We fired blindly overhead
We could hear those birds
Falling around us dead
Back and forth we wandered
Through the heavy, heavy mist
It felt like we were tumbling upon a life
That did not exist

The tingle in my palm
As our hands together squeezed
The mist surrounded us
As if we were in a gentle dream
