Colibri - Poem by Michael Witkowski

She cut photos,
Images, glued
them together
into collages

Look! A colibri!
The tiniest bird
Like a butterfly
Indeed

Her bare
arms - milky
pinky white
soft china

straddled with
fleshy red
railway lines

caught napping
in her world

Peeking

peek-a-boo

Rai lway lines
play hide and seek
