Chook struts to waterbowl, pauses, looks at water… head turns half away… Moves off… pecks at nothing, feigns another peck, pecks again…
Man watches all through shadecloth screened dunny door, sees iron lacework, recently invented shadecloth, lazy stillness of spring… he shits…. Feels time stretched all ways… life moves… somewhere…

      Better than a suave sophisticated male friend from work, right?
      Oh yes, you are SO getting a dog.

    • Different chook I think… not as great as the one you refer to.
