The beauty of a unicorn

is in its mystery,

purple Adonis

with sun bleached tresses,

curlicued golden antler;

a scaly, grey beast

with a horny snout,

beauty resides in the eyes

of those who can see

the fantasy in mystery

and smile.

The brutish intrude,

as truth denied,

a bleak horizon appears,

phantasm becomes

the refuge of the fearful.
