Poem of the Week

One Breath

One breath
sank into the dungeon's plumbing
exhaling a sunstroke

a talent relinquished
for nobody's sake
slowly groping
from memory

hiding a gemstone
not the Hope diamond

or a dollar store treasure
vanilla scented candle
perched over a
smiling gargoyle

waiting to dance with
the princess who walks by.
