an old coot to all the coots

the coots of bodega bay really put on shows when I lived there.

they’d turn it up on sunny afternoons and in the twilight of the day.

it was easy to see a little bit of daffy in all of them.

they chased and splashed and quacked with that coot quackwhack.

 

the best coot trick I noticed that all of them did to each other every time they got a chance

was the one the victim and the attacker both got the biggest kick out of

one diving duck would sneak attack from underneath and grab and pull those legs of floating duck right under.

splish and then surface breaking splashes and thrashes with that cartoon quack

as they celebrated the best signature coot moment.</p
