On Air Travel
Consider the arrogance of flight, the casual slip
of force and angular momentum. We speak
as though the choral winds whipping
cannot obfuscate the most basic gravitation.
In fact, man outweighs nothing
in the air. Observe the expanse,
the boiled remnants of innovation raining
from the edge of sharp, pyramidic fins
gouging the ozone in service
to signage, advertising the latest catch
on pristine wingtips.
Imagine the dissuasion of a fall, the swallowing
openness of sky as the final breath holds
in the hollows of a breaking earth.
