There’s an owl in my eyes,
there’s a monkey in my feet,
there’s a dragon in my bones,
and a bear heart keeping beat.
There’s a bird song in my throat,
there’s a lion in my locks,
there’s an elephant in my march,
and my strength is from the ox.
There’s a tiger in my teeth,
there’s a lemur in my dance,
there’s a fruit bat in my ears,
and a she-wolf in my stance.
There’s a menagerie in me,
and all these parts that you see,
I am them and they are free,
to roam my soul with all its trees.
