She’s not a princess.
She’s no Lady Diamond.
She has Irish Fairy Tales
And Voices On The Wind
On her bookshelf
Right next to Yeats
Byron
Block
DeLint.
She’s not a princess.
She’s a New Yorker,
She doesn’t believe in perfection.
But
She’s found her faerie tale love.
The Brooklyn Mermaid
Whose Mother fears the sea,
Who never believed in love,
Found it.
In a Tinker Faerie from Kings Highway.
