NIGHT FLIGHT
(6/25/10)


rising
accelerating
emerging through
an acrimonious atmosphere
of ostentations titles
overinflated tits
and obsessed
tendencies
we are reborn
into an outer space
of reality absolute
free of the frivolities
of our tiny planet
so self consciously
circling
the sun

we finally
float outside
the pernicious patterns
so indelibly ingrained
since youth

a lifetime
of playing along
in order to get along
in this collective
fallacious
fantasy

we made
it up
you know

we created
groundless games
to give us advantage
above nature
and each
other

society
religion
government
various nefarious
artificial extended families
intended to increase
power and influence
over those
who do not
resemble
our kind

we should
spend some time
in the cosmic vacuum
suffocating
freezing
boiling
dying
trying
to talk
pray
or legislate
our way free
of a final
demise

good looks
good breeding
good education
good portfolios
will avail us
nothing

realizing
our realities
and limitations
is the first step
to transcending
our fates

our feet
are tied
however
by constraints
of conformity
and hopes
all too human

our impotent
spaceshot
becomes suborbital
and we arc short
of the target
to tragically
plummet
homeward

perhaps
a new star
was sighted
on the journey
to illuminate
a fresh
perspective
of our plight

a fiery orb
to incinerate
the myths
of our
ancestors

because
what burns
away
are always
lies
