A to Z

give me a letter
twisted and beautiful
like butterfly wings
to fly to some magic lands.

give me a word
sharp as a razor blade
to cut them off
and fall like blooded rain.

give me a number
triple six and wine
to hide and reborn
ashes to sky.

give me an apostrophe
from A to Z
beginning to end,
to finish this poem.

This poem is my favorite. It's so simple, yet so gorgeous. Perfect. The first and second stanzas are so vivid with the imaging you used, I can see the pictures through the words. I love poetry like that. I'm sure that being born on the same asteroid of the little prince must've influenced your great writing skills, though ;)

I see a huge letter sitting high on top of a hill under a sky reaching for words from A to Z. I dont know sometimes I feel this way when I am searching for words to write poetry.
