I am iridescent blue and eyes of liquid marble, timeless and with wisdom that has no bounds. I am coarse yet graceful and I wear a mask of treachery. I am made of smooth lines but you would call me haggard. I sing but you do not hear me. I smile but you do not see. I communicate but you cannot feel it. I have been next to you all along. I can follow your secret path or I can lead you down it. I can fly through the night to a quiet resting place and you cannot track me. I can stand and see and you can fixate on me and we can approach one another but you will never get close. You can take advantage of me when I am young but you can leave me to die. I fight with my brothers on rooftops. I stand guard from the tallest tree. I own the sky. But you will only remember me from your level. On the ground I am a scavenger and I am shameless but I do not fear you. I do not fear anything. If you understood me you would learn more about your world.
