by Darren C. Demaree

In a carpetbag
next to the bed
& when we made

love attached
the bag to the ceiling
fan.  We used to

release the doves,
let their ferocity loose
into the Ohio sky,

but then we learned
that if we gave them
a little bit of motion

that was enough
to give them real hope
of actual flight.
