a bird that knows underwater things


the swan is a bird that knows underwater things.
you can look at the surface long enough
but there is never any way to tell what
is going on under the water.
what dark fish are lurking?
what seaweed ribbons
are making archways
and we know
nothing
about
it.

nothing.
