No, No, Nonet!

First one dove arrived,
then a pair joined the group–now
six more drop their poop
atop my fence and flop out
on the ground; I had to share.



Epic tomes* await
their annual homes on my
resolution slate.

*Once again, I challenge myself to read, Tolstoy’s ANNA KARENINA and James Joyce’s ULYSSES. This year, I’m starting with 10 pages per day. That’s got to work, right?
