paper dragon

i used to look more closely -
at the spindled branches framing clouds
at the red paint slashing a white wall
at the paper dragon someone hung at their door.

tomorrow,
when i take a paintbrush to canvas
i won't remember the way that red cut through the white
bloodlike crimson in the foundations.

when the wind blows through and a tree falls
i won't remember those branches
holding the world on precarious twigs

but i will still see the dragon,
suspended by string
floating with the freedom we left behind

    OH MY GOD this is brilliant! It flows so well and your rhythm is so calm, which makes it feel nostalgic. I don't know how you don't have more followers, and the fact that you're only 13 blows my mind. Looking forward to reading more of your writing :)
