The Making Of a Unicorn

"Take this bone, this ivory, this slender pyramid, this spear,
this walking stick, this cornucopia, this twisted instrument of fear,
this mammoth tusk, this pearly thorn, this mythic spike, this maidens bier,
this denticle, this rib of time, this alabaster harrow-here
we start the beast, we give it name
that world will never be the same.
