Carolina Wren

Where this time? The pair makes several tries-- my hard hat, a can of nails, window ledge all filled with leaves. How do they judge those inferior, this one prime? It's predetermined, I don't know how. So too their songs-- he two-notes or three-notes, and she chirrrs along. Same songs, same positions, morning in and morning out. I wake to their repetition. If they watch me, no doubt they'd see my own routines, but neither they nor I can find what isn't wired in my genes. Why does this human mind hear Figaro, Figaro, Figaro in his operatic voice? Or is it video, video, video? It's his song, but my choice.
