You Pulled Off Your Wings

“Into the Red” photogaphy by Michelle Engerberg

You pulled off your wings
but you were still able to fly.
You didn’t need them.
You just levitated
right up to the sky.
You leaned your whole body into it
like in dreams
and you have re-shown me
this common/popular belief driven world
is not always as it seems. — Signifiers Without Significance, Annette Marie Smith
