Feathers in Smoke

Our feathers wet with smoke
heat about our necks
bobbing shoulder blades
muffled muscles strain
peeling flesh yawning
wet shudders sinking
heavy inside
burned and buried
beneath you
hushed and smothered
beneath you
our pale shadows stare
into silence daring
all i know
and don’t see
i can’t see
we could try a little harder
but why should we bother?
