Watching

The man on TV has been told
he might die in surgery
and he explains
how he will find the one breed
he’s always wanted to find while bird watching
when he survives. I’m not sure
he heard what he was told
so I turn the volume up
but the scene has changed. People are
talking about sex or crisps or something.
