I was looking out the window this morning. Thinking maybe I should give the lawn one last mow, later, after it had dried out some. It was then I noticed two robins. One on the grass. One by the shed I keep my lawn mower in.
The robin pair were just sitting there, enjoying the warmth of the sun. I guessed they were a hardy, or perhaps bewildered, young couple, a little slow getting the fuck out of Canada. They looked at me looking at them out the window as robins do, turning their heads just a little to give me a good robin eye balling.
Fucking birds, I thought, and then I thought some more. Fuck the lawn, I concluded after a moment or two. I took my dog for a walk in the warm, warm sun.
