Writing with an Angel Feather Quill

Writing with an Angel Feather Quill

Tomorrow I will write you a poem,
speak of God, and polish
both our halos.

But tonight,

tonight, I will paint pictures
of past lovers
on strangers’ faces,
dine on awkward flesh,
and run into the arms
of friendly devils
courteous enough
to offer solace
from angry gods.

under cloudless skies

Absorbing moonlight on still waters in the dark of night

sleep drifts in on a slender reed before the morning tides.


Angel Blessings to once and future ash.

We always seem to, as you put it
dine on awkward flesh
in our search for halos. Loved it!
