An Owl as a Cowl 

An Owl as a cowl -
offered - refused -
What pose could be Struck
with Claws such as those?
a Cowl such as that -
unesteemed at Home -
Vestment of Feather,
hollow of Bone.

There's no prize for
devotion - no praise
for what's Feral,
not a glad hand
extended
for one who Retreats.
the World is an Empty,
cluttered old Thing-
that wants no
critique
from a Voice or a Wing.
