Do you know how to make a body grow cold?
I’m gathering yellow dust on the shelf;
And yes, I have tried to neatly wrap myself around my neck;;
And bow tie my skin neatly on my kidneys
My angel hid behind me// So I choked him
Now he is lying lifeless, bleeding gold
I have plucked his wings
I am new, I am glory
I too will see Heaven
I put the corpse in a body bag filled with lilacs and thorns
Down on my knees with detergent and my new wings I scrub the moment away
;I wonder what my wings will become
like Luna’s??/pure pure sun light
Like Ariel’s? ///solid diamond dust
Like Ruba’s? //soft clouds and sky
i felt the wings stretch behind me,
then, a roar-
the wings closed around me,
and all that was left of me was my polytene skin.
Purple bruised skin.
