Temporal beings

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’

Signed,

the roofing man


chapter II

Aggrieved, I went outside & confronted him —

He was still on my roof & about to release

another dove

Said the roofing man

‘I meant only as a friend!’


chapter III

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?’

Signed,

the chimney sweep man
