at the apartment complex where my boyfriend lives, there are these two ducks that always hang out together... one is brown and beige all over and the other has a green neck and head connected by a yellow band to the rest of its velveteen body (mallard and wife?)... they don't do anything of significance... just the ordinary everyday stuff... they swim in the pool, hang out in the grass, look for food, groom themselves, walk around, make little duck noises... and sometimes they fly away to i don't know where... but they always return to the same spot... always the same two ducks...

the other day while driving i saw two ducks flying up above in unison... i just couldn't help but think that they were the same two, returning to their usual spot... it felt good to think it was them... felt good to think they were always together... felt good to think that they stick to their usual routine... felt good to think that they are content...
