„This is a strange fraternity — these sea lions and land lions,
land unicorns and sea unicorns;
the lion civilly rampant,
tame and concessive like the long-tailed bear of Ecuador —
the lion standing up against this screen of woven air
which is the forest:
the unicorn also, on its hind legs in reciprocity.“

—  Marianne Moore, "Sea Unicorns and Land Unicorns" <!-- 165 -->
