The Vermillion Imperative

by Harry

Submitted by Aurora Phoenix


In wordless scarlet reproach
the directive is dropped
seed from beak to beak

Scatter the gloom in bushels and pecks
bill the pain to the past
wing the future notes

Onyx-eyed simplicity demands
broken-winged or fluttering
“Arise, fly, sing!”
