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!
