Non-Carnal Beings


Non-Carnal Beings

You innocent, I have guilt at times that I am your inverse

Corporeal, earthly, a dragon of earth

a charnel child, my father’s daughter

you are not from here I see

you are not like me,

did you ever like me?

My young wings covered in fur

I flew clumsily at first

Unlike the gossamer butterflies you loved so

But then I flew faster, higher, smarter, better

were you proud of me ever?

I’m now a speck on an infinite sky

but you will always love

the silken cords, the gossamer butterflies,

the Dresden ballerinas

That I despised.
