The Descent This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

She wanted to soar
Long after her blue feathers became silver tuna fish scales,
She thought the air would lift her to the clouds
To retrieve her mind,
Adrift it was–
Perhaps caught up in a storm.
She believed in sorcery magic,
There was a soul in every star,
Aliens on the moon,
So with a smile stitched,
A wand and a frozen clock,
She flew only to kiss the dirt.
The flowers ate the rest of her.
