FLIGHT CLUB
(4/1/17)

we circle

we revolve

we ride
the hands
of a clock

looking

searching

for that
jumping off
point

a space
in the spinning
periphery

a space
of time

where
no one
will see
us exit

when
no one
will care

we know
that these
opportunities
must exist

others
have sporadically
disappeared
in the past

they're
better
than us

braver
than us

they
figured
an out

took it

so we
keep
our eyes
focused

for that
space

just enough
for us
to slip
through

slide
away

and do
not

absolutely
do not

get in
the goddamned way
when we finally
find our
opening

or we may
take you
with us

we're not
coming back
