Mating

Marveling at your bird app

Mimic sounds of a species

Make a tufted titmouse sing

Move in on a sandhill crane

Mating call is now released

Menacing drop of its head

Mark your retreat with rigor

Mating

Springtime Mating

There is a horny robin

banging into the reflection of itself

against the glass window he thinks he found a mate

it is cold and hard

repelling his every move

yet he keeps coming back

handsome with his orange breast

sits at the top of the apple tree

contemplating his new approach

and mumbling

that feathered bitch
