Verse: untitled

This is not as I'd hoped, but offered in case you find some merit in it:

Sudden girls
bold as fate
that talk
in pairs
by the gate

come forth
come swift
and soon

where you will

your impatient
song while you can
sing your song

calm as milk
possessed by faith
as relentless
as cancer is

you cannot see
that you are
and unbound

and you will be
until you are
caught unawares
and permenently scarred
with deep, outrageous
penetrating love

  1. The 'Calm as milk' and 'infinite and unbound' images give me that little ache that is the equivalent of Emily of New Moon's "flash"... if you've never read this book, that will make no sense to you. It's good. :-) "Sudden girls" is a brilliant phrase.

    The end makes me want to lock up my daughter though.
