A Phantom Cuckoo

There was a cuckoo in my dream. It had let itself into the back bedroom- and was sitting on a mantlepiece that doesn't exist and its plumage was greeny-blue. Then I woke up, but the chant went on: cuck-cu-coo, cuck-cu-coo. I got up, drew aside the blinds and a couple of doves who had been having a conversation in the gutter above the bedroom window took off and made themselves scarce.
