Moltby ursulav

I’ve had these feathers as long as I remember
down and flights and coverts
great glossy primaries
like old friends.

covered a lot of miles
had some fine old times
my feathers and me.

But now they’ve gotten old
shafts cracked, barbs gone ragged

Time to molt, grow new ones
if I ever want to fly again.

--------------

As always, let me just apologize profusely for inflicting my poetry on any living being. God, I'm so very, very sorry. Still, there y'are.

Graphite on bristol, 14 x 17, pose after vintage erotic postcard. Original sadly destroyed in a move, but prints are available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

How do I go about ordering a print of this? 'Cause I really, really want one. I'd ask after the original, but it's bound to be well out of my price range (sigh, one of these days). The link that goes to Metal and Magic turns up gibberish.

Like the realistic body on her. Not something one sees in pictures all that often.

And, err... to be honest, I think I prefer your prose to your poetry.

The Raven is a creature of the void, a bringer of magic, the unknown and the growing conscience. A messenger of the mind and the world that surrounds it; what is it that this Raven brings to you?
