to the sky

soap-bubblesto flow
to float
to the sky
to the sky
to bend
unhinged
free
to pretend
no pain
to forget
your name
to flow
to float
to the sky

when our bodies fail us
when all we have is thought
no hands to write
no mouth to speak
no feet to even walk
when we’re sealed
inside our heads
are we nearly dead?
or are we newly budding,
blooming branches stretching further
than our old physical selves
could have ever hoped to go?

soap-bubblesto flow
to float
to the sky
to the sky
to bend
unhinged
free
to pretend
no pain
to forget
your name
to flow
to float
to the sky
