And those gossamer wings
your only defense
your only means of flight

now too delicate to fly
and too delicate to fend off
the assault
either shreaded by the wind
that should have instead
lifted you up
or torn to pieces by hands
you trusted to get too close
that removed all your defenses
aside from these gossamer wings
that you wrap around yourself
a security blanket without
the benefit of being secure.


Burning Man, because survival
is only part of the experience.
