Poetry

She said, she said

She said she hatched from a chrysalis
aaaaShe said she lost her wings

She said she was once a queen
aaaaShe said she wore a tiger’s hide

She said she could hold her breath for a very long time
aaaaShe said she had never committed a crime

She said she had been close to a comet
aaaaShe said she knew Verlaine

She said she was on the barricades
aaaaShe said she escaped on a horse

She said she never watches TV
aaaaShe said she loves her job

She said she doesn’t look back
aaaaShe said she could live forever

She said she had a contented heart
aaaaAnd we believed her.
