To Owl: Guidance

Be careful

Be careful do not break her
Do not bring ruin

You are at war with yourself
Do not hang her
With you

Be loving

Be loving be a steady eye
Do not be savage

You are in death to yourself
Do not carve her into marble
With you

Leave signs

Leave signs for her to follow
Let her reach you

You are –
Do not –

Let her.
