Utopia Parkway

Utopia Parkway


Flutter of ribbon hair

the purest of gifts


by none but the bearer's hands --

to be spooled not touched

spliced not cut

a fountain spring

no lock or keepsake

in a box


Marble white dress

Victorian doll

breaks free

from the forest


Flutter of wings

in the city park

pigeons fly home

to the quince tree

in the yard
