you float me

Posted to Action Poetry




i have floated
for the first time
in my delirious life.
put my hands in the air
and flown.
felt you as solid cloud
beneath my sailing.
you sliding beneath my gravity
and buoying this shell of a girl
through worm holes
of spastic diamonds gleaming.
i can't stop touching you
in mid-flight
while your mind
communicates with my heart
with the sparkle of orion
and the pinch of stardust.
i reach out my hands into the fog
and fly across your skies
for the first and last
and only
time.
