LIKE A BULRUSH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Or the spike
Last Line: Realize that he was amphibious.
Subject(s): Bulrush

Or the spike
of a channel marker or the
moon, he superintended the demolition of his image in
the water by the wind; he did not strike

them at the
time as being different from
any other inhabitant of the water; it was as if he
were a seal in the combined livery

of bird plus
snake; it was as if he knew that
the penguins were not fish and as if in their bat blindness, they did not
realize that he was amphibious.
