Cuckoo

that I have unease on this glorious green day

full of birdsong and kid-laughter;

I’ve been hearing the Black billed Cuckoo sing all night now that it’s breeding season.

In fact, I feel like a Black billed Cuckoo who’s eaten too many spiny caterpillars

& the spines have stuck in my stomach lining.

She periodically sheds such to remove the spines;

perhaps our PFN* will be shed & with him my unease.

Cuckoo.

PATTY

(For more info on the diet of this nearly foot-long bird see the above.)

Another Inquiry (not one Mr. Mueller need attend to though): Black-billed Cuckoos keep the destructive writhing Tent Caterpillars in check; how about our writhing PFN*? (a 420 character 9-liner)  (For more info on Mr. Mueller and his task see below.)
