Murder by Light

I let the sun in.

when drapes parted,

a smile born.

cacophony of spring

chirping.

then, thunk

feathers flutter

bits of dirt stain

glass mirage

of endless flight,

and

somewhere

in the yard

an injured, no, no.

a dead bird.

I killed him.

murder

by light.

drapes close

tonight.
