Barely tolerable

The fat doves allowed the juncos
a little space on the perch-
plenty of seed for everyone.
It was quiet, the smaller birds
stifling their song
so they’d have a place to rest.

The man watching seemed
to enjoy complaining about
the mess and the noise yet
he kept filling the feeder with seed.
It was an uneasy peace.
