Sammi’s Weekender #209 (wanton)

Dear Birdie,
outside my window
this morning,
you wanton mocker.

Was it necessary
to sing loud
copy-chirp sounds?
Swiping another’s?

Hush your shrieks.
Announce your
mate-less status later.

You may be
chipper as chirp
to see the sunrise,
but please let me sleep.

The worst part
of your miserable alarm is
I’m up now. but your silence,
now suddenly golden.


Look both ways for the sounds of nature.
Mind the gaps for twists and turns.
