learning to fly/

©2021 Michael Raven

i am dream
high grey cliffs cut the skies
ragged and jagged and sharp
fingers paint me indigo
lampblack bootblack
scrape the lines on me
brand me hot fire
my kissed eyes
press my white face close
cut bright with stars
iced like knives
agaric white spot scarlet
toss me tumbling over the
edge and watch me fly
