The Fifty Cent Tour

delay

eclosion interrupted
cautious chrysalis
stalled immaculate

tentative toes
tickle the water
for temperature

silken stagnation
swaddled east to west
south from north

no midnight love
no velvet flight
no sip of nectar

frozen local
overwinter migratory dreams
pump their wings nightly

a world an inch away
too soon now
too late much later

  5. When her wings are pumped - off she flies!

  6. This is just a damned strange picture to write for, or even to look at. The poem fits the image to a tee, but none of it makes a whole lot of sense to me.

    1. It's all about being stuck
      and not allowing yourself to evolve
      But yet dreaming dreams of someday
