Feathers, poetry by Bartholomew Barker at Spillwords.com
Pavlo Tymofiiuk



written by: Bartholomew Barker



She wore feathers in her hair
and looked perfectly natural.
The plumage matched the color
of her mammalian locks
and subtle avian beauty,
piercing eyes,
aquiline face,
slender limbs,
lithe body.
She’s quite the rara avis,
a species seldom seen.

I’m not trying to imprison her
in some cage for my amusement.
I want to watch her soar,
just not too far away.

So how do I entice her
onto my arm?
