The owl speaks.
there are some things faster than light.
thoughts of a scampering mouse,
the twitch and glide of my feathers
which move even before i think.
the anticipation of talons.
the secrets of the universe reside in my head
not your giant machine smashing crumbs
there are more things in the universe
than dreamed in your philosophy.
i am nature red in beak and claw.
i am quick to see,
quick to listen,
slow to speak.
harbinger of your demise
after the briefest of lives.
envy my omniscience.
is at its beginning.
(from Original Clichés, Ginninderra Press, 2016.
Have a nice Day…
