sign on the window
of a closed print shop:

reading from

A cold wind,
he wears a t-shirt,
shorts,
sunglasses,
determined –
to enjoy the summer

the young thrush
pokes it head through my back door,
showing no fear,
yet I fear for its innocence,
the innocence of nature

hanging washing out
with eyes on the clouds
to avoid
another rinse cycle

the peaceful chirp of birds -
constant drone of lawnmowers

no children’s laughter
on the street,
no birds on high branches –
no mountains today

gail force winds,
the loudest noise
still -
a dripping tap

New Year’s Day
a thrush stares at me
quizzically
