Article excerpt

you are her passion you creep her walls like

a vine once she saw a weaving in the

Musée de Moyan Age the leaves made it

whole & there was a girl & a splendid

ensign as a guide along with the girl

les animaux fabuleux a monkey

lion beautiful birds a cat & a

white unicorn what a wonderful thing!

to hold a unicorn's horn! when she was

small the orchards grew all around peach &

pear leaves made her nest on the ground she climbed

a tree & its branch was a flag she climbs

the tree & it is her ship & high up

above sway beautiful birds many years

later an undone sea the trees hold fast

to their leaves an unkindness of ravens

settles upon will not leave her alone

once upon a time a princess lived in

a Faraday cage screeched no! roared away!

but turn the page & there stands a man look

at the page you are that man your story

weaves through the very same book exhales the

very same lines sleep little princess inside

his arms you creep her walls like a vine
