the cursing parrot

the cursing parrot

i met this parrot on the day before embarking on a 6-day boat ride down the napo river.  i remember it was cursing a lot. i remember thinking what bad character he had. but soon i realised that a parrot only echoes what he hears. don’t we all? I thought then. bad behaviour spreads like infectionous disease. luckily beauty is highly contagious too. the parrot’s feathers resound the wild exhilarating colours of the amazon jungle. it’s language might be contaminated, but at least it’s still damn pretty in a picture.
