And the little boy cries on
the sidewalk for the loss of the
worms, dried out by the sun after a rain.

Eat them! the birds cry
into the dark of the tree tops and the inside of
his head. Their words become echoes in his
brain.

This almost has a dark/cryptic feel to it.  Interesting, creepy.  I enjoyed it.
