Fighting sparrows

Fighting sparrows

as crows gather sticks for nests

and magpies swooping 

Fans purr in orchards

Fans purr in orchards

factories accompany

I can hear the fog 

Angry crescendo

Angry crescendo

chirping and swooping attacks

window reflection

The frogs have all croaked

The frogs have all croaked

as birds fly fast to fight and fuck

lawnmowers cut through 

Seeking winter meals

Seeking winter meals

the white-plumed honeyeater

followed by blackbird 

Diesel joins a cloud

Diesel joins a cloud

as streetlights fade into day

rumbles never stop

Out in the darkness

Out in the darkness

melodies with hairpin turns

blackbird songs return 

Behind me trees squeak

Behind me trees squeak

we dance between the branches

as the fantail leads 

Sitting quietly

Sitting quietly

reading the flickering flames

as frost paints the lawn
