Fish Window Number Eight

Fish Window Number Eight
(Save us Jimmy B.)

My life is trick upon myself.
A dead bird fell form the sky.

Jimmy B. jogged up a hill
In yellow,
Pushed through tree branches
And hugged a girl with
A ghetto blaster in her hand.

Is this how birds die?
I thought,
One last fling across the sky
Only to drop like a rock
Into the shade of fish windows?

How can Jimmy B. jog by
And let this type of stuff happen?
