Plumed Moth

Plumed moth edit

Illustration: Hazel Brown

Less moth more
Ethereal
Seek fleeting being

Of spectral seaming
Transparent as breathing

Convolvulus feeding
Faerie fragile fine feeling

Those Microlite wings
All too easy to shred

So snappable as thread
On leaf left laying

Cotton corpse like in bed
Outspread, playing dead

The White Queens
Marriage dress
Unheeded

Unwed.
