Take Flight

I am grasping the art of flight.

It might be a different method

than you think,

no machinery or wings required.


I prep the airy path

behind my eyes and down the throat’s runway;

the pre-flight check

is buzzing and complete.


A magic air strides through my lungs.

I take my leave of the common and mundane.

I greenly fly. I’m more alive

than life.


I land next to you.


J. Pratt-Walter
