    theres a new raccoon we’ve noticed in the courtyard 

    they say doves mate for life.

    every morning i rise from my slumber, walk to the front door and stick my head out the door.

    i look to the left, then to the right to make sure none of my neighbors are outside.

    i dont want them to laugh at me in my pajamas.

    then i put on my flip flops and walk outside to retrieve the newspaper.

    usually the doves are startled by me and they fly off drunkenly a few feet.

    they like to hang out in the dirt of our courtyard.

    no idea why.

    arent the trees a better spot for birds?

    yesterday i talked to my neighbor and i said, why do you think those crazy doves hang out in the dirt so much?

    she was all, lazy maybe?

    recently ive only seen one dove  in the morning.
