Imagine Escape

Chair With the Wings of a Vulture, 1960, Salvador Dali

Eyes wild, last vestiges
of a woman.  She feels
her body spread, pinions
replacing arms.  Trapped
in the spoon-wood chair,
not as certain.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Loved how your words fitted the picture … escape can only be imagined at times, unfortunately.
