Drowning of a feather

The feather wind.
Hard enough fighting gravity
to be caught by water,
binding colour and barb.
Little boat of oblivion.
I am soaked in life,
scotched tight by the life giving,
thinking this plash
is the start of my ocean,
the streetlight silent,
the burnt wings on the serpent.
