Happily ever
after the mockingbird sings

of evolution in the voice of a frog
(the frog does not become a prince)

(prince's kiss does not wake a princess)
no rag-tag heart seeps back to life beneath

her dress made from old bedroom curtains
magic is a kiss unscripted

bodies held together in repeated stitches
lips that strain to come together

unfurled into wet glossolalia
- learn to speak
