Birthday


The weather didn't come out today.


Only rain fell like tears on my face


Before it touched the ground.


Eight magpies, white and sapphire and black


Wearing formals by the headstones


Looking to me for something shiny.


I'm here in my nightdress


You can look, I don't mind


But you can't have me today.


If you think of her, perhaps Medora


Will dance for us and shimmer.


A phantasm is the only show today.



Then in two nights, when light was high


In a dream adorned and sparkle


Jumping light to hang in poses


Held in the air, in a room alone


Everyone else downstairs.



2011
