Feathered Hair

lizard
scales
bird
brains

heartbeat
on a spoon
what the fuck do i
know

about
Turkish
figs

shoulder bone
frigidaire
whole 'nother
creature

keys
exchange hands

weight upon his shoulders
special brand of self-hate

of memory

unfinished business

big legend
small shoes
full

walk a mile in
