A seagull on a streetlight at the Stevie Nicks Concert, A hawk in Rainbow Parkinglot.
Donna and I have kissed again; honestly she wasn't feeling well. When we went to the Stevie Nicks concert, before going to Gloucester and Rockport, there had been a seagull on one of the streetlights that she noticed. During a sound check we began a conversation about it, however romantic. There is now a Hawk living in the parking lot across the street. It too will perch on top of the street lights, apparently while feeding. It is in fact a large, beautiful bird. The parking lot can be notable for its Rainbows, depending on the season, and it has a way with the sunset; but it was where we had our first date before living together, which happened to be almost a year ago (eleven and a half months) during the middle of a thunder storm ( we needed a cab to cross the street and parking lot). I informally moved in after Rockport, during which we had rain I don't quite remember there being lots of seagulls. Illustrations from the end of the late nineteenth century: Scott Lord Scott Lord
