Paper Pigeons

1072806-1440x900-[DesktopNexus.com]

Once

And no
More

Rilke in the

rain
Kissing

In          evitable           tragedies
We

are little boys and         little girls

Who live to
Tell and
weave     s     t      o

r   i   e

s

Of  needs  and               w

ants

Shaped by

fear
And words
gifts                                 trust
respect                            honor;

Watching                       bridges burn
As we

sink;                                singing

Like

Once and

no
more;

And yet, we
dance                               in vases

to                                      gether

and a

part

For                                    ever.

  1. I like the staccato and fractured structure of this poem. The structure makes the words more broken-hearted.

    “Once

    And no
    More

    Rilke in the

    rain
    Kissing”

    Love this intro. It sucked me right into the core of the experience.

    Good work. Keep writing, Alicia,
    Alice
