Starlings

Snarls, bread trucks, yeast
breathing inside huddled bags,
and sleepers completing lives
behind their gray windows.

A whistle on the phonewires,
feathers, twitches, whistling
down to the hot loaves.

Reeds everywhere, pulse,
flesh, flutes, and wakened sighs.
An answer. Radio news

and breathers behind our windows,
birdsí new voices changing,
changed, to the unforgiving
hunger screech of immigrants.

Regards Nathan

Wonderful shot Julia. These birds are so often disregarded but, as this shot shows so well, they do have the most beautiful plumage.
