Airplane of Ember Leaves

 


 

Airplane of Ember Leaves

 

 

the runway your handmade

jewelry accompanying

 

this crystalline flying

to new cities all the time

 

desire to find the shine

in this anxious jittering

 

era of highs and highers

these tired accoutrements

 

remain in blood to flow

into rivers of our futures
