Pigeons Are Here



Flight of the Pigeon

Artist: Duke Riley

From: NewYorker

Diwali is almost here, the Hindu festival of lights. Midterms are very much here. “To be, or not to be…” is here. Obviously. So rushed!


* coos * (or more like, * lets coo *)

Pigeons are here. Thousands of them. In flight. Cooing. Carrying LED lights. Carrying whispered prayers. Yours, mine, ours. (Or so, I’d like think). Note they’ve taken, observations they’ve made. There’s a promise, a no-fuss-promise, these stars in flight are carrying.

Relax your student self tonight. Your human self. Pigeons are here. Thousands of them.
