Demilitarized Zones

shapeshifting winds sculpt skin pressing fingerlings of mist to my curved canyons ~ ebony birds sing sketching with wings the worth of me shimmering rivulets of being a mirage unsabotaged by a pearlized sky ~ for I grow young and wise a fruit that ripens out of sight if you wish to know my direction […]
