Don’t judge me for my presence

don’t rate me on appearance–

I may be a turtle

in a creep of tortoises,

I may be an urchin

in a sea of submarines,

but the murder of crows

can’t catch this quick black raven

and the chameleon’s camp

can’t make me camouflage

and the clowder of cats

can’t call me on my claws,

I’m just here existin’

and breathin’ it all in

a hippopotamus to the rhinoceros to the grandest porpoises.
