Demise

Finches flash their yellow with surprising frequenccy

in this coolest of summers, borrowing a cup of sunlight

for feathers, slices of lemon for wings, a patch

of black velvet for a cap.

–Excerpt from “Demise” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective 2013).
