Swallows and BranchesSometimes swallows learn to fly,On lofted winds they stretch their wings;Trees are homes for those afraid.Though all birds fly and flap their wings,Some shall never leave their nests;Sometimes swallows learn to fly.In dead of night they set their sightsOn soaring inside milkweed clouds; however,Trees are homes for those afraid.They stretch their twisted jointsAnd beat their mangled wings, forSometimes swallows learn to fly.A gentle hope of fastidious flappingBreaks the bond of nest to feet; no longer,Trees are homes for those afraid.Goodbye wrestled nest of needles,Goodbye broken shell of home, forSometimes swallows learn to fly.Trees are homes for those afraid.

LookLook beyond her curves,hips flow downthe river of legsto her foundation.Look beyond her smile,insidious and vile,full of contemptand corruption.Look beyond her ocean eyes,into the black holethat has claimedas many men as the Bermuda Triangle.Look beyond her words,deceit laid in waitto ensnare her preybefore devouring.Look beyond this woman,Siren temptressleading men to rocksof Medusa victims.Look beyond this womanand imagine more,wait till morningand youll see.
