on a plane from san marcos to salt lake city

manevolent Forces,
and updrafts –
inspired by these
high brow
cotton fellows – spent
a few moments
in silent
deliberation.

flashes of electric
Death bolted around
and beyond and underneath
my boot clad
feet

a good six
thousand, six
hundred and
sixty-six fathoms
below, Earth
is swallowed
in white froth

mountains and
plains pressed down
by the sheer magnitude
of a once
pancaked planet

and i rest my
head in facile repose,

oblivious
to the veritable
terror of
flight

Godspeed and
all that – for

my home is down there
somewhere, beyond
the clouds.
