The morning after it had been super-windy
it was still super-windy
and standing on my balcony
we saw three doves flying around.
One of them was all-white,
two of them were white with black tails.
I thought the black-tailed doves were bad omens
but when we got in my car,
“This Is How We Do It” was playing on 92.3,
followed by “I Can’t Go For That,”
Logic dictates that each one of those songs
cancelled out one black-tailed dove,
and we drove off into the day
ahead by one all-white dove.
