featherless

light let low through gray and dusk
fallen angels
flat out on
their featherless backs
smiling up
at all the stars
with wings of
skin and bones
and flannel shirts
and hair
stuffed up in
their woolen hats
try to keep
their knitted mittens
and store bought socks
from letting in
the crystal cold
while they flap
and flap
their silhouettes
all the way
to a snowy
heaven
