Skirmishes 12

By Livia Vorange

Skirmishes - brief battles of art, poetry and prose. -

Owl Man

Owl Man.
He doesn't live by muscle.
Owl Man wants to be known for his heart and his mind.
Owl Man drives a hybrid but he's worried about what the battery will do to the environment.
He's an individual.
He works smart.
He respects others.
Owl Man.

Not like his uncle
Owl Bear
Who rips people limb from limb and
Who screams epithets at their remains as he shits them out

Owl Man.
He is not like that.
Owl Man is not afraid to be fashion forward.
Owl Man does his best each day to speak and act mindfully.
He bears his burdens proudly.
He waxes his eyebrows.
He reads BBC News.
Owl Man.

One day
Owl Man
Is going to marry your sister
And you won't mind
