[white paper #31]

paper sheets of sheets
robes of hoods winking
clouds stirring storm

 

coming home to front
door closing back to back
to roost pigeons whitened

 

doves among white
blossoms trees limbs
swaying eyes gleaming

 

teeth bones remaining
dangling fleshless white
bodies underneath after all
