The love of your life has returned. There is a parrot on her shoulder.
She circles you twice. Her eyes are closed.
It seems futile to ask the parrot questions.
“That’s my scarf,” you tell your wife. “You’re my wife.”
The parrot sits on your wife’s face.
“Can I have my scarf back,” you say.
The woman looks at you now. There are bars in front of her face.
“That’s a fine parrot,” she says. “I’ll take him.”
