Drowned Feathers in New York
Graceful, sad queen of the swimming birds
covered in tulle and leaping-
your sickness was hidden so well.
So bloody your nails, so clean your face,
your mind tilted into a broken Arabesque
and split like a hologram projected from a shattered lens.
Like light spinning in your red water,
we heaved full double-distortions on our sobs
reflecting in the glazed eyes of our Swan Girl-
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Some lovely imagery. I really like this one.
