NaPoWriMo Number Twenty-Four

Give me an encyclopedia draw me animals
I’ll name you Gessner and give
you a tail maybe a monk’s hood maybe
canines you can lick
before barking you show me
the splinter of a unicorn and etch
the possibility into vellum you describe
camels and whales illustrate a walrus
so many dragons
a chameleon a knighted rhinoceros from
a comfortable seat in a
well lit room we imagine the large world
around us think how fantastic
to guess at the thought world living
just beyond the door
