A large and rather beautiful antelope (lie down in your own doing)

Today on talk radio,
the host spoke of an oryx
Not a bird, he said, to someone who thought it was.
A large and rather beautiful antelope.

Something about this caught me.
To be a large and rather beautiful antelope
doesn’t seem like such an unreasonable thing to be.

Ink-stained interloper
in the most beautiful of ways
Unleashed in the world,
casting long shadows on the desert
hoofing up holes in the sand
only to kneel to no one
and lie, cool,
in your own doing.

    1. Hi Tony, thanks for dropping by! My Sunday evening reading is on exactly the topic your post features: the ways in which social media affect our health, behaviours and lives. My writing appears predominantly in poetic form, and I like to tackle themes like this. I hope you stop by again!
