Metamorphosis

Limp and beautiful

she hung

foetal, knee to chin

shimmering in sun

and starlight

reflected in morning dew

slipping beneath curled toes

foetal, knee to chin

woven membrane

silk in which to blossom

to grow.

 

Limp and broken

she hung

stretched feet dangling

low

deformed wings

hints of blue

she could have been so beautiful

ripped too early

layers of silk torn in two

in which she blossomed

and bled.
