owl / eagle / do not pay attention to meagre protest / aim for droplets spattered / food
/ squirrel / mouse / rat / welcome / cat / sheep / human baby squirm give up / what else are you for?
love this sharp invigorating seizure / your soul and your soul startled / greeting /
ZIG ZAG the black thunderbolt strikes fear / is it so bad? / being carried by the act that made your familiar shadows / release the cramped cower / such sport / your transformation into bird
