i tuck my wings

beneath the seams

of indelicate triage

a fuselage of time’s

bounded barrage

disparage at cost of trade

beyond the parade

of a rippled montage

while we play charades

with bombs and brigades


i have been sweetly remade

by hands that assuage

this voluptuous volumetric

the balance of whispers

in my high places

entrained to the castle’s keep

i steep my notes raw

as you sleep and wake

beside and inside of me
