she dreams in spiraled clouds, candy spun
of nothing-dreams. she seems a wayward

soul, a lost girl in dragon skin. she’s begin
-ning to believe in something, anything, this

thing that is her own dark soul. she knows
the world’s got claws, and skin. she looks

up, watches gravity break its own small
law: turns out, it’s not all coming back again.
