How to Build an Owl
By Kathleen Lynch:
- Decide you must.
- Develop deep respect for feather, bone, claw.
- Place your trembling thumb where the heart will be: for one hundred hours watch so you will know where to put the first feather.
- Stay awake forever. When the bird takes shape gently pry open its beak and whisper into it: mouse.
- Let it go.
