Surely not, John McPhee.

The tremolo yodel twixt Common Loon mates is NOT a laugh of the insane.

I listened from the edge of a secluded pond–Private! No Trespassing!

But CLs don’t read, just emit ethereal enunciations,

like the back & forth between Lydia, Chloe, Luke, William, Claire, Hannah

& the elders as they ply the waters of Long Pond.

Call & connect.

It makes me laugh & reminds me to love. Insane?

Surely not.
