Vertigo

You are dizzy again today.

Your hazel eyes become

two different birds, one a fat

sparrow, the other a bloodshot finch . . .

–Except from “Vertigo” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013). First published in Summerset Review, Stand.
