Love Affair

 

On the rooftops of fish-town

The passionate pigeons

Roost and revel in twosome bliss.

Evening sun and a lonely antenna

Provide them a stronghold

Opposing the earth.

Here they coo their infinite mantras.

 

Kissing and billing,

Their beaks start to clatter

And feathers are flying,

The action direct:

The lad mounts the lady

Convincing and straight.

With fluttering wings

Once

Twice

Three times he conquers.

 

Emerging victorious,

Needless to say:

This cock, to be sure, remains

King for the day.

 

From Animal Kingdom
