narcissism

sebastian saw something:
an assemblage of assorted animals
of feather and fur and dark of aspect.
sebastian heard something:
they were conferring amongst themselves
noisily worrying this observer.
sebastian said something:
‘look at how you all assume
to stay there murmuring yourselves.’
sebastian thought something:
‘you have visions more than some–
while life is configured and imposed.’
sebastian knows something
about the narcissism of poets,
preachers, and various madmen
