Imagine – Jaya Avendel

If you look down 

Into a 

Goblet filled with red wine

You will find your teeth

Have turned the pearly white

Of fey skin and the

Backs of mermaid’s mirrors.


Yet gunshots ring in the white wine

Where your eyes flirt with angel’s trumpet

And there is blood on the 

Rim of your cup slowly



Revealing your sins

Lying stark on a bed or roses

At the bottom of a wishing well

Where fairies cannot fly.


Touch the surface and it

Ripples and

Your fear scurries away

Riding astride a swan as a

Streak of black in its feathers.
