How Our Songs Remained the Same

How Our Songs Remained the Same



Meanings must be sealed.
Must. And every sentence
is a song
of swaying fields, revealing

of a way you are, a small way you
word, or drop in tones
lower never went

far, that
low in meaning–
grounded, soil and earth step raise, back

and you, roll back and coiling up balloon-lite,
up where light-beams
clear sight.
Clouds. & .Sky. & .Spheres. & .Plane

and heights
that planes fight with and brush with,
sealing them off
from landing

where men, and men plantations
gaze, off age,
And all stars. Terra-foam happenings
In space. There, frontier years boarder

the years we scrapbook
and read. Away. Now, I am gazing more
at myself than
at stars, and seams, lessœns with an age.

Always pleasing
how our songs
the same.

    I love the sensation I get from this poem, that of sinking/dropping to the earth and then rising like a balloon to the sky, brushing against airplanes.

  2. Again, exceptional. I love, the years we scrapbook…hhhmmm idea
