Sleeping Beauty

That whole time
she slept

all those years
amongst overgrowth
in ivory

They pounded
on her door









*There's some more of these over at now! --> heroin love songs

the thing that intrigues me about 'sleeping beauty' is its haiku-like quality and effect :) I like that. Thank you :)

Such a finite, complete statement ... which opens up all sorts of unstated possibilities. :)

I have a swag of them Rosemary! Just never know quite what to do with them, I generally open them, say hmm they're odd, and close them again :)

Odd in an interesting way. Maybe a published collection?
