NAPOWRIMO Day 19: Mating Calls in the Romantic Zone

NAPOWRIMO Day 19: Mating Calls in the Romantic Zone

In Puerto Vallarta, working and mating sound the same.
Outside my terrace, construction workers using jackhammers.
Headboards of lovers bang against the wall.
The Funicular to a nearby rooftop restaurant hums off and on.
And the bird who gathers at the pool each morning is the loudest of them all!

Now try erasing words from this paragraph to create a poem or, alternatively, use the words of your paragraph to build a new poem.
