On life’s meaningful pauses

We’re weightless

As we ride kites into the sunset

On bleeding fingertips around the string,

Running the ins and outs of our verbal textures,

Until there is no more life to waste on.

There is a neon bar inside the topology

Of the flight, leading all wingless lovers

To make believe well-adjusted, invisible

Hugs and torching gazes into the psychology

Of being unseen.

Still, if I can hardly ever hold you inside

The spelling intricacy of me,

How can I breathe breathless into the air of you?
