Daffee' and the Animator

Norma Perfect

Issue 2 * Spring 2000

And what is this magic-
al transformation, from common Duck
to uncommon "other?" The flowered head
and body quadrapedal-How
flies my flag, my tail, with the ball
and the screw? It is all Him

who animated, intent on my re-
creation in His image-me
the lummox, the flyboy fool-And then

Just as my new body-my body
in image His-becomes me to me,

by wings, by legs, by breast,
by beak: I disappear.
