[34] Storm Brewing, Christina Petrides

A squall of seabirds rises
From the rock broken surf.
White foam and feathers
Brilliant in the sun
Cascade again
Onto the restless water.

A fleet of dull grey ships
Sits serene on the horizon.
Each vessel smoothly turns
Empty eyes shoreward
And awaits a clear signal
To open fire.
