Peacock

-From Revolution by Birds

 

When you close your eyes
peacock
nothing vanishes at all.
Ten thousands more are open
peacock
of green iridescent tail.

Who gave you light feathers
peacock
who gave you blue sight?
Who gave you the will
peacock
who gave you the claws?

They called you Argus
peacock
they gave you a crown.
They gave you the power
peacock
you pulled them into your mouth.
