I DIDN’T SEE you down there.

— Ha ha! Smarter than you.

What were you?

— Ain’t tellin’.

I smelled everything that ate, breathed, birthed and shat. You weren’t down there.

— I was. I was the macaw.

No you weren’t. Which macaw?

— Hyacinth. I stayed to the west, around the pond by that dry copse.

Really? Why didn’t you come play?

— Tigers freak me out.

I wouldn’t have eaten you.

— Oh, I know. I wasn’t worried about you eating me.

What, then?

— I just don’t like tigers.

You don’t “like” tigers?

— My dad wore a tiger.

Yeah?

— That’s all. So I fly.
