Dream Beast

using only a surgical knife
sealing wax
and arcane artifice
they removed the cerebral cortex from the infant child
and by merging it
the hollow husk of a cetacean
and some albatross feathers
they created a manequin of sublime and remote nightmare.

they had no name for such
a creature
and named it not
for it was delightful to work but frightening to watch
but by casting it
in dappled shadows of dusk
they implemented a new
and terrifying beast of gargantuan and robust dream.

the dream beast.
