voices in flight (20170515)

consider the old saying
that every time a bell rings
an angel gets its wings

and think of all the times
you have heard a cash register chime
or the wall street stock exchange
or a fire alarm
or the low slow clangs of cowbells
as they are led to the slaughterhouse

what the hell are those angels making
their feathers out of
misery, greed, blood and fire?

i have always preferred birdsong
an earthly tune to be sure
unfettered yet surrounded by sky
even if it is all about territory
and sexual conquest
and where the best worms are

  1. Angels were definitely originally of fire. We have Disneyfied them, as we do with anything that frightens us or cuts too close to the bone. (K)

  2. Have never given you a shout out Crow, but I do so enjoy the twisted pathways your pages wander. Thank you
    I read it all, and see it well

    1. Thanks so much, that’s very nice of you. I’ve just recently discovered your site and what I have seen so far I don enjoy. I like your bio paragraph too. 😁
