These Birds

These budgies
here in the bird room
have memories only
two minutes long, so I have been told, but it is kind of neat
how one or the other will chirp suddenly under the cover that
darkens their cage, chirp just at the moment when the
right word comes to me. Reminds me that there are things
we know and also things
we do not know.
