Robin’s Song

Illustration of two robins singing with speech bubbles that say 'Robin's Song'

robin’s song soon to start
instead ambulances wail on across neon warmth
I forget sometimes
stare soothingly into the setting sun
spots on my vision
illuminate memories in my mind, ignite
after all these years
I hear the vibration as it is
the familiar drops fully harmonize with the rises
in anticipation, I hope
there’s only one other person who knows
what the sound is
but I don’t know them

The American Robin is the state bird of Michigan. If you’ve never heard a Robin’s call, especially their evening song, listen here.
