Two starlings seen at once
Is a good omen.
Two starlings sit
On opposite ends of a porch.
It is impossible to see them at once.
Don’t look at just one. It’s bad omen.
I bring handful of chickpeas
And spread at our feet.
They flutter their wings at once
I look at you rolling eyes, smile
Two starlings turn into good omen.
They finish the chickpeas in haste
And return to their opposite ends
No more on talking terms with each other.
Two starlings are now back to being bad omen.
