Hummingbird

A friend was in the hospital after an accident, and in bad shape. I wondered if there was a window to his room. I imagined how trapped he might have felt. Sitting outside on a September morning, I taped the sounds in the yard–a kind of antidote to what I imagined must have been a depressing hospital room–and a hummingbird came in close. You have to listen towards the end, and you might need headphones, but you can hear the hum.
