..

they’re two parts
moon, i think, a drink of
shimmered scale and waxing fire.

where do their wings come from?
starling murmur? darling’d breeze?
the breath of trees and song that comes
……………(what may)
from long stray veins
of talon’d silence.

we query not
their gator teeth,
the brief singed scent
of flight.

..
For Misky’s twiglet this week. Come play.
