The bird-man by the road

p1194184

The man is a bird. But the bird man cannot fly. He does not chirp or sing.
His parakeet (with clipped wings) can pick my fortune out from a stack of cards.
The bird man tells me I will have three children, and that I will marry a dangerous woman : dangerous in a nice kind of way (he winks as he tells me that).

Ah, I can hardly wait!! ;))

i think this man looks like he himself married a very dangerous woman. so it's just projection-cum-camaraderie. oh and i hope you do.

but what the bird man says in the beginning is very deep and philosophical .. the bird man cannot fly neither does it chirp or sing. almost like a poem :)
