So I’m Not Jane Goodall

Thanks to Valerie Valdes for the suggestion of today’s poem idea.

Love Birds

The fast chatter
of parakeet dialogue
is difficult to discern
until there are three
in the cage.

Two are in love
and the third is in limbo.

Melodious fast twitter
turns into sharp chuffs,
fast beating wings
and a sharp peck.

Then one hops down
to a lower perch
again.

A world of place,
of station,
of caste.
