Red Tailed Black Cockatoos
race up the hill
like a chapter of the Jokers
on a run

Leaning into corners
Dominating with their noise
They wear their blacks
and show their patches
Flashing their colours and their outlawed
outsized beaks
casually vandalizing everything in their path

but then you think
if they wanted to be taken that seriously
they should probably stop flying around in circles
screaming like girls
