i give you pearls

say something, —

about the sickled moon
to distract the others

from what’s really going on
beneath my open
plummage

where i give you pearls
and doves and chandeliers
dripping

5 is so gracious, —
and i’m counting this
fan

with the bleeding heart,
one more design,
and another,

another one,

— before pressing pleased lips
to mute
