     peacock feathers of smoke
     brush over my calves

     the plumage working its way
     through the stockings & skin
     to nestle into the muscle

     where it will root like an acorn
     and grow into an oaken pair of wings

     to lift my feet from hardwood floors
     so i can dance
     with my knuckles brushing against the ceiling fan

     my heels rocketed from the floorboards,
     crushing my body against the whirling blades

     leaving a tremor that fights my hands
     as i measure tea with tiny metal spoons
     & ease the leaves into a hemp bag

     coconut and lavender rooibos all over the kitchen counter,
     unexplainable face twitches, and achey shoulders
don't do drugs, stay in school, ask your parents before going online

Wow, this is a very beautiful piece of poetry! I'm not sure if I am interpreting it right but the flow of words makes it very relaxing to read. If you have the time, I would love it if you could explain this to me.

aw, thankyou. not too too much to explain!! just basically a couple of images that got stuck in my head that it seemed possible to link together. the first bit was written while smoking before a party, and the second bit was written after the party activities had destroyed my body a bit. bookending a night, or whatever.
