And then a disembodied morning
floating among checkpoints

flight conference luggage flight
each clock telling me

it’s some different time
and none quite right

and suddenly it seems
so apt

that lightning only wants
to reach the ground

it’s unsettled up here
interminable and tempting

me to strike
without warning

I’ll call you
once I land



  1. Yeah, I don’t think there’s anything simple here, really, right? Some complexity and frustration of multiple time zones and responsibilities and tasks and desires, and the sudden energy to shrug it off by some indirect but immediate and connecting line. Great work.

    • I don’t think anything is ever simple, and particularly not the things that really should be simple… 🙂
