Following the Leader

Outside, the pelicans circle in the air,
like toy planes strung from the ceiling.
They each follow a bright white body
with a shock of deep black feathers
on the trailing side of theirs wings
as they form a continuous ring in the sky,
finishing seven laps before one breaks
out of the cycle and the others follow,
seeming not to notice their new path.
