Flight

image

a phoenix
periodically burning herself to death
from the ashes: emerges —
emerges from inside —
a new phoenix in a new form,
metamorphosing into strength
turning agony into joy.
first comes the wings
sprouting, fluttering and flapping
reflecting gold on gold — blinding
then the body tightens
the eyes brighten
she, a beauty, a temptress,
raises her head and
looks up, but —
what if she can’t fly?
