I was born fully clothed in chartreuse satin which covered my feathers and scales.
I drank the song of the sea through my mother’s oyster milk, and licked the snow-capped teeth of mountains.
I was raised in a time when wolves recited Homeric epics to the full buttered moon.
I played second trombone for the Hell’s Angels Philharmonic, and conducted lightning for the Archangels Symphony Orchestra.
I foretold the coming of Sahara monsoons.
I fried handfuls of crushed stars in a pan of midnight oil.
I sucked fig juice from the fingertips of Babylonian whores.
I held my breath for forty days and forty nights, and swam all the way to Atlantis.
