His plumage deceived 
My childhood dreams; blue-green
Pulled by a thread through 
time's riverbed, upstream.

And as I mend the seam, 
he spills, flesh to steam 

How I would haste these patient days 
To know your verdant lawns...
You flaunt your shine, so pavonine 
But you run away, terrified
and now I cannot tell what's your's from mine
Or what I'll find... 

He thinks he is free, but
my shadow, it hangs in the reeds.
Once soft, supple limbs
now taut with attentive greed. 

And now I want your head, 
My quilled diadem 

Our conscience bound and struggling
Once-dazzled eyes, you've lost
The glow; the beat
In self-deceit 

You'd rather gag on the rime
than share the hearth and watch the cold
retreat
upon receipt

With readied blade; my trembling future
in one hundred eyes 

Can I rewind?
I would trade it all just to chase you through
Soft pearls of dew,
the warmth and hue...
