if bodies could flow to where minds fly

if bodies could flow to where minds fly
I would learn weightlessness on the moon
or perhaps string stars in a burning thread,
not needing breath & laughing
at magnitude and gravity

as if absolute things mean anything
in this madness.  in smaller scale
I would gasp at the secret symmetry
glowing in a pinch of sand; bivalve shells
jumbled intimately with quartz

in this flight of mind
where I have asked distance to collapse on itself
as if counted with imaginary numbers
I would find you, perhaps

a variable nested inside all this improbability

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    You got me with the first line

    And I’m already weightless
    In your orbit

    Even had to delete
    Excess baggage

    To achieve

    Quite an improbability, atoms meeting atoms. Have I seen you in this configuration before?
