Decades on from our high-speed courtship
I am still humming that tune.
A whirlwind aerodynamic youth
When the heat of the sun filled our hearts
And we were high on hibiscus,
Branching organic compound.
And when we parted and I returned home,
Heart-broken - to the other side of the globe;
I could not get you out of my head.
But now, too long, the landscape has changed,
Bordering on a metabolic dust
As I travel back towards you,
Fleeing, flapping, frozen in memory
I cannot forget our tune still humming in my heart.
