The seagulls own the harbor in Essaouira.
There is no escaping their aggression,
except to surrender,
to leave the water’s edge for the relative safety of the medina.
I read somewhere
that Alfred Hitchcock got the idea for “The Birds”
I thought it was an urban myth,
a good story,
but lacking truth.
But then I stood along the harbor,
here in Essaouira,
where the birds are everywhere,
the moment when they will reclaim it for themselves.
