Day 23 Napowrimo
Fear and Curiosity
On a crisp spring morning in 2008, Fear overheard a pair of Curiosities having a chat.
Fear had been tracking Curiosity for some years now when the Curiosities, nicknamed Flywing and Bigeye, nuzzled their enormous boxy heads and began to talk.

Today’s (optional) prompt is a fun one. Find a factual article about an animal. A Wikipedia article or something from National Geographic would do nicely – just make sure it repeats the name of the animal a lot. Now, go back through the text and replace the name of the animal with something else – it could be something very abstract, like “sadness” or “my heart,” or something more concrete, like “the streetlight outside my window that won’t stop blinking.” You should wind up with some very funny and even touching combinations, which you can then rearrange and edit into a poem.
I took inspiration from an article at National Geographic, "Groundbreaking effort launched to decode whale language" by Craig Welch. This was a pretty interesting exercise particularly to note how the meaning and the intensity of the subject changes and varies with reference to who/what it pertains to.
