Love song


…of the Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua)


(a)typical silhouette V-shaped
flies on super-soft-silent
(into buildings, cars, transmission lines)

rather mournful
voice: a LOUD hoo-hooo


the claws,
the heavy heavy claws


not to build a nest
a half-eaten possum
Yes, I still love you.
a brief silence
