Audio Poem from “This is What is Invisible”, #4 of 12

As a reminder, I’m posting an audio version of each of the 12 poems in my new collection This is What is Invisible.  This is the fourth posting, and it’s called “Nest”:

Nest

Two days until the weekend
and only 42 days more
until vacation
and 2,292 days to retirement
the janitor on outdoor duty
in one idle moment
lifts a rake effortlessly
and transforms
the meticulously built nest
of a starling into mulch
