a moment near cooper park.

sapphire black
ethereal, the lilt

two worlds transposed
and the currents coil
with inhalation, on muted wings

thrusting ahead, luminous
lucid irises rest, sifting
through pictures

eyelids closed, she exhales
and silently alights

    "thrusting ahead, luminous
    lucid irises rest, sifting
    through pictures"

    There's just so much motion here, and it feels gorgeous. I love your writing and am a big fan of your magazine (Montucky). Just wanted to drop by and say kudos.
