……..another being of equal humanity (so u said)
a girl in a yellow church dress catches a rook in her bare
……..……..……..hands, eats it feather by rakish feather
……..……..……..until her bracken sunhat slips
into a sewergrate for all the sunless creatures
to stare @/awestruck until one steps forth &
…………….declares this the second coming of their god
……..…………….& all the creatures fall to praise
