My Animal Self


I use to believe
I would be a wolf,
Or a lion, or a shark,
Or something ferocious,
If I were an animal,
But now I conclude,
I would be a penguin,
Braving frigid waters,
Swimming in uncertain seas,
Both black and white,
Purveyor of monogamy,
Floating on my own little iceberg,
Emperor of a frozen wasteland
