Kenyatta Jean-Paul Garcia

Wings Are For

The old lizard sits on the mantel
well not so much old as dead
sitting well, perhaps lying
there
giving lessons in the differences between
ghosts and angels.

Wings are for
so much more than flight.

And not all visitors
are guardians
but curiosity
is a permanency
which comes
when serenity doesn’t.
