Temporal beings

Somebody up there loves me

***

Yesterday a beautiful white dove

flew into my open window.

On it’s leg there was a note 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.

Except this dove appeared to be covered in soot,

& it coughed several times into its wing.

Said the note,

‘What are your interests?’

Signed,

the chimney sweep man
