HOMEWARD BOUND IN LAVENDER LIGHT
Her name is Sailor Her sister was Piper Sierra
her cousin a dark crumble under the shade of pines
Sailor walked out of the woods Sub-zero one sock
Broken wrist blood-smeared chin Father was 48
Mother 46 watching her from River Styx Kindly man
in woodland house said: I brought her in and washed her face
Courtney Love whose scalpel-face is unrecognizable tells us:
Forget persona Your mojo is your mojo Sailor Gutzler
knows a thing or 2 about mojo Born with a huge dose propelled
tiny body from upside-down plane into snow covered forest
The newest Boko Haram-boys will need some of her true grit
40 kidnapped on the day the Gutzler plane fell out of a lavender
sky Why would they covet boys? With 219 girls still missing the
question begs an answer The answer questions our collective grip
on what remains of humanity’s sanity
tiny suicide bombers?
young sex slaves+soldiers?
spectral heroes guiding children out of crashed planes?
Sailor Gutzler was taken by ambulance to Holy Sister’s They set her wrist
& a family member collected her as the world woke up to a nascent year on
