Ü

The Ü is ignored by many creatures of the forest. It’s proliferation is unhindered by the dichotomy of prey and predator. It is, as well, utterly unconcerned by the laws of nature. The Ü has created a bubble-like home for itself shielding it from the elements, allowing only for air to permeate through. It lives, not unlike most plants, uniquely by the nourishment provided by a photosynthesis of sorts. The shell that constitutes its home is virtually impenetrable and, if pierced, the Ü emits a toxic secretion that subsequently blinds and suffocates the intruder. Hence its being left alone. Equipped with both male and female genitalia, it benefits from a seamless reproduction.

At night it can be seen flying high above forests and cities alike. In the next year it is projected that its sheer demographic will twice outnumber any and all living organisms on this planet. The Ü’s cry resembles the sound of a vibrating tuning fork. Clear. Monotone. Given its isolated condition, it is believed that this lonely note is sung uniquely for its musical value. Not for mating. Not as a defense mechanism nor to attract prey.

Purely for the beauty of expression.
