Abyss & Apex : Fourth Quarter 2007: I Wish For Wings

Gwen Campbell

I Wish For Wings

I wish for wings
The arboreal touch
Of silk on flesh
Of genes recombinant

Of flight and power.

No one the wiser
As I fold them
And hide
The pinions of my power
From the world’s waking eyes


Gwen Campbell is a poet from Pennsylvania, ponders,  pays it forward, and likes alliteration.  It’s also a pseudonym for Wendy S. Delmater (we were short on poetry for that issue!)
