timing + gravity

embracing the buoyant
we're practically flying
to hell with the timing
don't look down just let go

as if we have wings
for floating our loving
your kisses revolving
buoyancy x and o

despite best intentions
and mighty resistance
gravity irrelevant
we're actually flying

wrap your words around me
i am yes to your yes
fly me like you need me
to hell with the timing

but gravity is gravity
and timing is everything
gone again though you need me
down again i let go.

  7. the cascade works beautifully with this. there's a lovely falling (or cascading) in this poem.

  8. ian seeing you commenting on this makes me think it should be flying around the page too, instead of all straight and proper. huh.

  14. thank you, friends.
    i am just trying my feeble hand at cascade here.
    i defer to the master of the cascade, Danny Earl Simmons.

  15. A beautiful emotive piece, with so many well-chosen words to harness the ideas, but this stands out for me as a line to tattoo across the heart:

    i am yes to your yes
