In the tree outside Emma's window. The white fluffy nest lining is my dog Piper's fur, which is coming off of her in clumps and is downy soft.
A Bird Love Story
They wore gray shawls and built a house from
the Elkhound’s dust-bunny hair
The pair spawned a trio of demanding children,
which they tended diligently for just more than a week before
the three were gone,
catching a ride on a sudden short breeze, never to be seen again
And the two split then, since they had nothing left –
unless you count that time, before the eggs hatched,
when they hunkered together in a nasty Spring hailstorm.
