birds on the telephone wires

birds on the telephone wires,
birds in droves
blackbirds – round, soft-bodied,
     strung out like laundry against the salmon sky
dusk was falling beneath their wings
     dusk was falling,
          falling,
               falling,

          at the close of twilight
               night dissolved them
