Cheetah Girl & Bird Girl




Cheetah Girl said,

Speed is the way so the past won't come around--

My feet are always gone when the dust comes down.


Bird Girl said,

Feathers are desire, imagination is the air--

My bones are made of dreams, the ground of despair.


Cheetah Girl said,

No star ever born had to prove it was a star--

The night is a cheetah with its spots made of light.


Bird Girl said,

Down all of time, all the years that were or are--

Dawns are always days, even though they start as night.

"The night is a cheetah with it's spots made of light." I want to know how you thought of that and how you managed to type it with one arm?

I'm with Cheetah girl. "My feet are always gone when the dust comes down." (At least that's the plan.)
