gravity’s pull (20180207)

these are the coalsmoke wings
the oilslick feathers
each a dizzy spiraling martyr

how many times must
the wing evolve
modifying limbs
until the correct vessel
for flight appears

we are rocks with voices
we are the earth subducting ourselves

gravity’s pull
is action at a distance
