falcon heavy takes it all

by: Monica Mills


what lack is had in great escape?

not adder nor eagle nor minnow

but rabid here a lonely bird

and there it goes hoisting some souls

into outer eye of god

its shadow sovereign fleck of dust

in dauntless eternal sea

framed phallic, tarred white

full of flame and greed and hope and loss

falcon heavy bends this world or other

in man’s blistering touch

staining at edge of unknown

with that it stole from home
