Poem: The Owl and the Swan 

To read of want
To write of possession
Beauty and wisdom
All rolled into a singular line
A repellant swan
Hacking out a wise owls pellet
The moist cocoon
Contains within it
A bone bouquet or some flora
The romantic claims beautiful
I peel away the casing
And present to you this poem
Which like a twitching cat
Awakening from a nap
Blossoms within your hand.
