Slender

Tulip Bubble Crash

Slender

I love the feeling when we lift off. Watching the world so small below.”

White Lies, To lose my life

A lap belt, a shoulder strap; has fear got a hold on me

A lender of charms and bracelets, clotheslines cutting the sky

A blessing from Lady Begone, flying off the tips of her tongues

÷

This trailer’s slender frame compresses me into null digits, until

only the inflationary skies will pump me up again to full burst

Radial potential exploding like a clear Prince Rupert’s Drop

÷

Take this down, tap this out, write this in your ledger of time

All will expand as it contracts; the balance is the birth groan

Our ship—it’s the vessel—is born of the groaning compression

for the expansion of those who cannot remain, floating this waste

Earth™2Move will lift off on May 1, 2014 with the glitter shake

of a diamond in its ecstasy—remaking information stowage

archival at last—our history moving forward with the present

a dream chain complete from Lady Bygone, flying off Earth’s tongue

÷

Save the perennials, those tulip blubs from Europe’s first bubble crash

as a reminder of our predilection for foolish highs and ignorant lows

We’ll stow them with the outmoded myth of healthy competition and

rational economics—the Lady’s ex-husbands Bygone begone for good

÷

A lap belt, a shoulder strap; fear’s no longer holding me

A borrower of charms and bracelets, rockets’ glare cutting the sky

A blessing from Lady Begone, flying off the tips of her tongues

÷

I love the feeling when we lift off—watching the world so small below
