Damn! I Didn’t Notice The Egg!
Now there are ten doves, about 8 too many.
How could I have been so careless? For years, many, many years, I pulled eggs from beneath nesting birds. My fingers searched under warm bellies, then tossed the small ovals into the trash.
Because I felt horrible doing this, I chanted, “No babies. You are too old and they could outlive you.”
