  1. This is actually a tanka, right (of the experimental kind)? Rather than a haiku with commentary? In which case, I’m glad to see you’re still stretching the form 🙂
    Plus, the mourning dove’s song seemed to have an echo of Leonard Cohen – “I need you, I don’t need you. And all of that jiving around.” Which seems apt, since I expect mourning doves would be big LC fans…

    1. Yes, experimental tanka, stretched to the breaking point almost 😊
      Haven’t listened to LC in a while … suppose he’d be perfect these days now that the dove really doesn’t need him. Bittersweet I suppose.
