Vertiginous

soothe my plumes

in the evening mist

for i am a flight risk

as the sea speaks

with a roll of tongue

all or none promises

~

i am heart weary garb

beaten on stone

and you alone

seep the hollow

of these bones

clothed close

and i long

for the spectral tone

within the song

you wing for me

a silent secret

symphony
