Up Here, All Things Float

Up Here, All Things Float

We know what makes

a balloon float,

clouds without string too.

After all, we built magic

up there, if just to redeem


All things ascend somewhere.

So much so,

the dark vault of sky

impossibly sags

clouds buckle like

riveted steel beams with cracked

seams, impossibly so.

For now the patched stitches

won’t sieve, though a few

believe it’s only a matter of time.
