Wings

Updated on August 28, 2017

At night,

When solitary crickets

Sing me canticles,

To sleep,

I wish we wert

Twin wings concerted,

Turning midair,

To the East...

The firm ligament of virtue

Would be our love's garantor

Stout as Kremlin's towers - fervor!

Our tears would be the feathers.

Thou art both ambrosia and hemlock,

And yet nothing in between,

Thou art sanity and madness,

A straitjacket closing thin.

Still i'm lying in the open.

Mindfully eyeing the stars,

Dissimilar to what we could be,

Splenetic still, 'bout what we are.
