“Songwater” by Smith

The Owl & the Pussycat Have Sex

Such a strange love this fowl and feline
this bond between cat and bird
in waters deep beyond their reach
a heck of a hoot
in their catbird heat
with a fine feathered furring for each.

Except that
this part here
won’t fit that part there
and just where does what enter what
and if they do
and these things merge
must their children
their egg-fur-flux future share?

Or if bird and cat
choose even stranger loon
in catbird bop
perhaps they’ll do it doggie style
howling, hooting
meowing at the moon.
