Girl, you got 

girl you got

Wings down your spine

Silvery feathers

An anthem in your head

Sing it, Girl–

Sing loud

Whole world to hear


heart a bird caged in bones

Use it all to

Question every undisputed 

Law mitigating the force 

Of gravity and light

With your full-throated

Iridescent flight

Rise up



Amazon wedding dress

late at night

I search for something to cover

My fear

A wedding dress? day-glo body-paint?

Or Marilyn Monroe

‘s iconic white shift

When truth is all you really


A body is 

Mostly just  water-

River wide and shimmering in the sun 

Deep muddy current

Run all the way
to the infinite
