blue velvet dress

I must confess

I’m the devil 

in a blue velvet dress

writing pagan poetry 

detailed impeccably

unnerved by inconsistency

idle hands, indian giving

its worth admitting 

when my axis shifts

I go tumbling down

a technicolor rabbit hole 

misconceptions counted

by an invisible metronome

landing in a menagerie

of careless flattery

where rejection is both 

a bottle marked poison 

and the filigree silhouette 

of a skeleton key

a. duncan, 2018
