Swan

Pluck out your feathers.
Rage against restraint,
against the devil
in a sweater.
Throw yourself to seed
and lie down as a swan.
Die for us
this one graceful death. 
And the world will swoon.
dying swan

You tell me if Mick Jagger doesn’t strike this pose in the end of his 1968 performance of Sympathy for the Devil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3uTLHEGm-M&feature=player_embedded

  1. Well, I didn’t catch the swan move, but I can see the inspiration for Maroon 5’s song, “Moves Like Jagger” 🙂

    • After Mick tugs fitfully at his cropped sweater several times, finally at the end he pulls it up over his head and takes two knees on the stage, tucks his head and lifts up two extended arms…voila, a swan.
