airplane

Updated: May 7, 2019


airplane engine hum drum drowning

out the voices speaking soothing

self-assurance, way up where

apes are not evolved to dwell.

we’re all in this shit together:

this capsule of recycled air and

digestive gases.

speeding toward the sea,

we echo past the mountains

to the tallest trees, the unwashed

lands of life-giving rain.

roosevelt was right

to show us sacred places

where time is glacial. why

can I not lie and say that you can be so lucky?
