A thing can come from the sky and not be a bird.
the Great Siberian Fireball of 1908 came from the sky,
but was demonstrably larger than any common songbird.
It did not build nests,
leveled all the trees in which nests might have been built.
Therefore, the Great Siberian Fireball was either
a) not a bird, or
b) a very stupid or careless bird, of tremendous size.
Art requires patience, but patience does not necessarily result in art.
Some things can be delayed, and still be attended to in good time--
won't we all still surely be here?
the morning is uncommonly bright,
that sable looks fetching on you,
and the secret police have continued to document our love.
When you took so long to get here, I had my doubts, I confess.
I had my bags packed and was half way out onto the tarmac,
but their report is filed and they are pleased.
How do I know this?
a little birdy told me.
