Ladybird Hands

Fortune follows you where I can’t

No envy

Just wishes

(It crawls up one finger)

The ease of it all, intoxicating

Weightless

Unencumbered

(Now the second)

Laugh like glitter in a jar

Somewhere else

I am you

(Reaches the third)

Promise you’ll come back

Promise

Before you

(Fourth now)

Fly away
