So far too many and way too early black birds

the immense choir of all those invisible birds
demanding  clearly their very own leading role
their volume increases immensely until  it hurts
for many moments I long for some form of noise control

I feel solitary confinement by cold damp air
even the worlds across the street barely visible
almost impenetrable low misty clouds every where
I long for the world nearby and  lesser invisible

birds nests of white wires on and in my head
my winter coat seems outdated by a white float
I yearn for the morning sun and its intense red
feeling now like a scarecrow with a dirty-white trench coat

an impenetrable thick mist drapes her impervious shroud
vaguely crescent moon shares sparsely silver light
with even more hidden birds singing out extremely high and loud
the morning sun beyond horizons and no glimmer of hope in sight
