When in the course of human events

A bird poops on your head

You have to ponder the

precise variables which aligned

for that event to occur

The species of birds in your region

The species of perching birds among them

The preferred flight path of one individual

gliding from perch to perch

between the trees which a city planner

drew in the landscaping plans

decades ago

The wind velocity that day

and the walking speed and

vector of your pace —
