Dove

What will you believe of me
with the tiny white stone in my mouth
like a guardian angel wings in your hand
taking you deep into the forest, my treasurer
my captive, my deceiver, what will you believe of me
when I turn towards the moon and fly away
the stone at your feet forgotten like the breath on my neck.
