Ode to a Swan

By: Emily Hare

Questions for a swan I loved but whose image I never captured. Ahem:

Do you dream of swans or people?

Do you dream?

Do you have a favorite color?

Who’s your best friend?

Do swans even make friends with each other?

When you were little, what did you think you’d end up doing with your life?

How does the life you have now compare?

What’s your marital status?

Do you think it’s weird that there’s swan merchandise everywhere in this city? Does it make you feel famous?

May I have your autograph?
