Above the Birds

Below
The road pushes through concrete towers
Soiled with the atmospheric alluvium
Of urban sounds and smells
Polluting the senses

Across
A Phillipino amah hangs out laundry
Almost drier than the August air
A mosquito infested syrup
Sapping verve

Above
The tallest skyscapers
The clouds are carved
With mechanical wings
Taking the high road

Above the Birds

Jane McAulay Wilson

The Peak, Hong Kong

Artist's Description

Haven’t written or looked at any of my poetry for ages. Must have been having a bad day when I wrote this one!
