Toppled - Poem by Melanie Emikohe

Conceit stumbled
when she met the better one,
flaring feathers with grace.
She should have known.

Next to her boss, she's tame
like an apprentice.
Revery travels way back
to where she was god

and ponders,
she shouldn't have left.

    I have to agree with Michael, compact, powerful and enigmatic.

    I love the succinctness of your style, Melanie. It says so much more, and more forcibly, than the more which is less! (Report)Reply
