Poem A Day December 27th

Alabaster Princess

By Jackie Fedyk

 

Insipid, colorless, pallid doll

If you jumped from the castle how far would you fall?

Maybe if you spread your wings you could flutter

Maybe you’d melt through the clouds like a hot knife in butter

Your fists are full of grass holding fast to the Earth

What treasures hold you back and what are they worth?

Make merry your time make empty your heart

A paper doll can clearly be torn right apart
