When Sorrow Clings to Angel Wings


She made it through the Spanish flu
a million others died
but slipped and fell with scissors held
Oh, how her parents cried


Rorschach’s plume, still in bloom
soaks through her dressing gown
she raps on heaven’s pearly gate
but no one is around


When sorrow clings to angel wings
They might-as-well be clipped
So back to earth
To haunt the house
Where she tripped and slipped


Immortal klutz with lots of cuts
dark shadows on the wall
she roams the house without a spouse
wrapped loosely in her shawl
