This poem tried on
a garrulous fountain,

its big-deal diamonds,
the way it fell apart, and

adhered to the path
with the spillage of light,

its slippery leaves,
how nice it was to me;

But now it appears

there’s an owl amongst
the meadowlarks,

! an owl inside every
meadowlark !

and they aren’t known for knowledge
for nothing.
