While walking in the Luxembourg gardens I noted to Alejandra the small spikes rising from the heads of statues. I told her they were to keep the pigeons from resting on the statues. She responded that she hopes she never sees a pigeon impaled on one of the spikes.

That got me thinking about a haiku I know:

Fluttering headress
Blood dripping in garden rain
How death crowns a queen

On an entirely unrelated topic, can we agree the Scarlet Letter is in the top two worst books in American Lit?
