Oh, if only those
air conditioner fans would stop
then I could listen to
the summer serenading
of the frogs.
I have a funny story about bullfrog serenading, which is probably only funny to me.
Put on some insect repellent and leave the whir behind.
I would, if I didn’t have this screw working its way out of my ankle. I managed to get around campus with my cane, but wasn’t up to off-roadings, so I never did escape all the noise. Inside, the bathroom fans always were going. They were wired in, and it wasn’t possible to turn them off. I am glad to be home. It’s quieter here.
