I got thrown by the "feather in a vacuum" line because the First image I had was of a feather in a vacuum *cleaner*, and I'm thinking "which part? is it in the vacuum bag? or is it like my crazy vacuum cleaner and cycloning the feather all over the place?" My mind was too literal for the simile to work on me. But the last line about her "bright head" *is* quite good.
