Birds of the City

There are birds in the city too, you know. No, not just pigeons and crows. But finches, pipits, and coots too. In the city, a finch is rare, a pipit endangered, a coot a rumor. There is no need to sit waiting, binoculars at the ready. No need to see to know they’re real. Instead listen for their song, their horn, their music and ask them silently, “sing again for me please?”
