A Sunny Day

A captive swan chained to the underground, she lay beneath the underpass. Cars passed above, family-full, sweets stuck to the upholstery. Unaware.

Three days had passed, enough for moss to consider her cheek. Not enough for the insects to have rehomed but soon.

Still, this day had cracked yolk-like and her alabaster shell warmed with it.

How much easier life was now.
