I am the potoo
I spend most of my time sitting on the edges of tree branches,
pretending to be a stick or dead leaf
it’s not as easy as it looks
I sing virtually exclusively around the period of the full moon
because, according to legend,
I am a mournful spirit in love with the spirit of the moon
I approve of this so much.
I hope this animal doesn’t become one of those “oooo so cute! I want one!” things where people start capturing them and selling them as “exotic” commodity pets. BE FREE POTOOS!
yes! fuck you to all the people saying “i want one!!” they are not yours to have!
