Clack of beak & flap of feather,

pirouette catch food in flight,

pivot, swoop sweep, soar & pivot,

convex eyes dark mirrors bright.

Slippery house-foot slides & slithers,

eyestalks telescope in fright,

undulating forward slimewise,

tail-trail glistens in the night.

Sucker-tip toes, tongue that targets,

clad in emerald wet-suit bright,

hunter launched by leaping legs,

drum bellow-throat thrums,

skin stretched tight.




The Reverend Hellfire is a Practising Performance Poet and an ordained Minister of the Church of Spiritual Humanism.

Available in individual, cling-wrapped packets for your greater hygiene and convenience.
