Liminal: fairy-blue, like the spaces between diagnoses.
The centre of a trembling that hollows out a city, or a
marriage. Organza petticoats made from blackbird feathers
and staples. The curve of a tongue on the back of the word
lullaby. The writhing of mango skins in water as seeds
float frost-like on the surface. Bitter yarn untied between
orange segments. The butterfly layer of a French-kissed
postage stamp. A half-sonnet stretching the full length of a
robin’s tombstone. A band of white light past the horizon.
Music, and the hitch between one note and another.
