Parrot Silencing


The neighbor’s silver-white wolf-dog
howls and howls and howls some more.
Day in and day out since the beginning
of this hide and seek like game

The La Cucaracha whistling parrot (forever and always)
is dead silent. Ever since. Pun intended.
I think the wolf-dog has scared the parrot to death, so to speak,
and now is mourning its loss
