bee eater birds.

bee eater

“snap”; beak  closing

little wings brushing against inside of throat,

a painter brushing his brush against closing cell walls

a desperate attempt to fly away, escape

.

swallowing, swallowing, swallowing

the chase continues, prey here prey there

swoop, “snap”; beak closing

“goodbye little honey-carriers “
