wild girls breathe like origami dragons 


we are spun 
-sugar star sisters perched 
on delicate tongues


violet ones savored in tang 
of rain. we swallow scribble. 
we dribble-drizzle rasp

-berry paint over syllable 
and stanza, stained. we’ve 
got ink between our teeth

and hiccup’d giggle-hope
inside our veins. our pen
-chants for fancy are fame

-us. tame us not. we’ve 
caught a whiff of our own 
brave. fold our words on 

to your tinged tongue like 
bumble-bubble gum, and 
sample sip the whimsy’d 

trip, for the love of way
-ward wings, embered sting 
and nibbled grace.

In April, we poem. And sometimes there are dragons.
