Poetry: Fine Feathers

Fine Feathers
a poem written by Lois Heger
in response to the lovely jacket,
Fine Feathered Friends,
created by artist Jill Becker.

How outrageous that art could hug a woman
Patterns that dance around her shoulders
Embrace her torso with pulsing vibes
Guinea feathers that flirt with her cleavage

As if Icarus' feathers
Fallen from their
Man made wings
Floated down
To land in a silken shrug
Around the shoulders of a lovely girl

Fine Feathered Friends, modeled by Annalisa Jose
