Mermaid Out Of Water 3

If you were a real girl, a real woman,
that seagull would take off
with a flap and a whoosh and a shriek.

It would wheel and scream and yell
that you had no more right to be there
than a hare or a camel, or a gazelle.

If you were a real girl, a real woman.
But you are not. It can tell.
