Lucy Alexander #68 Wound/Unwound (after SSVW, LM and SH)

I am watching her long hair
leaping in springs from
that place exactly behind her ears,

yes, it tangles in the wind
bounds out from her skull
coiled thought wound unwound

all the flowers and lizards
tripping stars, feathers the
txts of pulsing hearts

blow out like halo light
making her muse from detritus
making it up as she falls

and falling dreams
that she is winged and crisp
the horse is steady

goes galloping from here
even if she is sacked even if
the news is dire

there is the horizon waiting
waiting to be bent
turned and welded into here.
