coda














O! To belong to a thing
that will have none of you!
To be a fish that belongs
to the sky.
There's a copper key
on the ocean floor
that works a wind-up bird.
Its song could teach a fish
to fly.

I think I might not have been able to guess who this was, were it not for the "roller derby" listed in your profile...
