The Black Unicorn

The black unicorn is greedy.
The black unicorn is impatient.
‘The black unicorn was mistaken
For a shadow or symbol
And taken
Through a cold country
Where mist painted mockeries
Of my fury.
It is not on her lap where the horn rests
But deep in her moonpit
Growing.
The black unicorn is restless
The black unicorn is unrelenting
The black unicorn is not
Free.
