about birds

Ah, we female birds
so plain and dull
sitting upon our nests
obliged to keep our eggs warm
and what do you do
fly off with your freshly preened
brilliant red plumage
to seduce another dull female
while we colorless squatters
do not complain
understanding the urge to wander
is in your nature
so we dust-feathered, will teach troops of earnest chicks
and you will be crowned master of ceremony
for a parade of dull females

Out Green Man, Out!

My Friends,
I woke up this morning and a Green Man was in my head. I think he hails from a distant house in a far off neighborhood. He wears a crown of flattened, blue celery to frighten would be produce buyers. AĀ ring of cheap gold ā€“Ā his pet ā€“ accompanies him wheneverĀ he strollsĀ down the street seeking out thoseĀ who dare to donĀ a better crown than he…

Sometimes you just have to let theĀ Green ManĀ out.
Green ManThank you. May you dream of men in the vegetablesĀ of your choice.
Green Man created yesterday, I’m still trying to figure out why he was in my head and so is the giant husband šŸ˜‰
