Maybe somebody up there loves me …
Yesterday a beautiful white dove
flew into my open window.
There was a note tied to its leg that read
‘I love you’
the roofing man
Aggrieved, I went outside & confronted him —
He was still on my roof & about to release
Said the roofing man
‘I meant only as a friend!’
That next afternoon
another white dove came to my window.
This dove looked very dusty
& coughed several times into its wing.
Read the note,
‘What are your interests?’
the chimney sweep man
