Expecting a delivery
I hear a bang
like the slam
of a van door.
Through the window
nothing, no-one there.

Then I see it;
the splat,
the smear of blood
on the pane.
I find no sign
of injured bird —

but oh
how it must have hurt.

    I get a few every year into the picture window… but no blood yet.
    Just dazed when they land on the patio roof.

    I also get quite a bit of snap, crackle, pop from insects… some do go splat.

    So often this happens with double glazed windows.
