Sometimes it is to set out forks

The Crane Wife
Does that bird
think of bygone times
as it flies singing...
- Princess Nukada
There on the poor man's doorstep,
an arrow biting into my wing,
I flew into the arms of decision
my cries calling clouds,
even to the brow of Moon:
I would not be this;
kindness come to me,
and songs of a different flesh,
irresistibly new. That was why,

When they ask, I'll say...Call me arrogant and I willWhen they ask, I'll say... by DavisMarie
Dance around your fingers
And say you might be right.
Right about everything, except

Open at 2 a.m. Except when he
Prays to your mother's knees.
Except when he is sober enough
To stand but he kneels anyway.

Tells you to mind your own business.

And plainly glorious, and your palms
Slowly become sieves of sinew for the glassy
Shards of light that reflect off everything
But you. You can call me arrogant,
And I'll call you anything but right.
