A Short Course In Ornithology



for R.P.


The reason eggs laid in a nest

Are round--

Is because they are directionless.


But feathers are pointed, and meant to seize

Both desire--

And an uplifting, animating breeze.

Isn't nature wonderful.
It knows exactly how to prepare someone for the life they are to lead.
It doesn't matter what human or animal we look at we all start the same and then the genes take over and make us all different.
