It lets you know that something is above; but why care about a being you can not imitate or communicate with.
If all you do is flare your nostrils your eyes will cross, and the monolith that seeks to guide you will appear lost.
So the next time the sky feathers on to you
don't be dismayed
but open your eyes
because the big head
has opened his mouth
to point out the way
that leads to your trail.
