"Flight" - E. Ethelbert Miller - the silver of her / wings - #poem


(for June)

she steps off the
plane with
the silver of her
wings still caught
in her hair

the space between us
is not distance

the flight of my hand
towards her
gives no shadow

E. Ethelbert Miller. First published in Gargoyle #5 (Richard Peabody, ed.).
