Birds on the roof

We ran in half pants ,in sweaty fear
Of ghosts in trees , birds that meant
Ancient fear of bodies ,while perched
On tiled roofs, from life’s other side.

Bodies waited in tired old buildings
Before they were cut up by surgeon
To find out why birds had left them
And were now perched on roof tiles.
