Collage of a Drifting Love

Memories of  a  love I’m losing
arrested  thoughts on sculpture paper-
an altered photograph, adorned
 by hand cut leaves, evergreen shades, and lace
From the page emits, cricket songs
 drifting  to gloaming,  and on and on
 into my own mandarin twilight.

I adjust a pair of glittered wings
 to your thorax,  twiddle them
 these symbols of  your intending flight 
Next, I place a crumpled love letter. 
 its text, garbled by smeared on gesso

 Covered so no one will guess the message-

 except, perhaps where a small spy glass
 magnifies, I LoVe YoU- I LoVe YoU-   

High on the page a bluebird brightly sings
