The Long Division of Hummingbirds

by Anna Ruiz

free hand
human frailty paints
a straight line
to my heart
and the madness begins

I disappear under waves of emotion
in another world
we are drunken butterflies
sipping from an ever-blossoming well
the golden nectar of gods

bewildered in the magnitude of wings
we are immortality
found words trail us like lost sheep
