6:00am
woke up
had to pee
and go to work
stepped onto floor
FLAP FLAP FLAP!
FLAP FLAP FLAP FLAP!

what the
what the hell–
WHAT THE HELL

FLAP FLAP FLAP
FLAP FLAP FLAP!

Looked at the window
Was mostly closed
Some idiot bird managed to
swoop onto the sill
between the glass and the screen
Must have thought it was a safe place
to sleep

It was still for a moment
terrified
just woken up

I looked at it for a minute
then put my hand against the screen
and shooed the robin away
Time to get up, bird
No one cares if you’re
ready
