Utopia Parkway

Utopia Parkway

 

Flutter of ribbon hair

the purest of gifts

unwrapped

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
