Losing Gravity

Con/Jur/d, 4/13/2022

 

Understand what he means now

“If you want to fly higher put your

feet firmly in the  G

                                     R

                                    O

                                    U

                                    N

                                    D”

 

“As if you had a choice,”

we argued, being young

and subject to Saturn rising

but not yet the R

                                E

                               T

                                U

                               R

                              N

 

I hand wrote a mad letter

to him saying as much,

                   Dear Antero Alli,

 

                “I agree with every -

                 thing you said yet

                you got it all wrong”

 

I was a child

although it was less

than half a lifetime ago

 

as the permanent

loss of gravity

when we will

no longer be subject to its laws

lacking a body

we find R

                O

                O

                T

               S

to be of ever-increasing importance,

not simply the ones of soil, genes and

water, but the rootlets that D

                                                         E

                                                         S

                                                          C

                                                           E

                                                          N

                                                          D

into the atom

into the galaxy

into the blackhole

 

Eagerly penetrating the everpresent

everlasting everexpanding evercontracting

infinite in every direction in both Time & Space

the place where P

                                  O

                                  E

                                   T

                                 R

                                Y

comes from

and too soon

we will return.
