Paper Planes

September 7th, 2014 by Magdalena Tabor

Fold here, there.paper plane
Double crease for weight
And balance.
What I remember
From blissful youth
And flights of fancy,
And untold destinations,
Could not prepare me
For the nosedive
Into that puddle
Of persistence,
Drenching the dream
Of simple aeronautics.

But I remain
The engineer after all,
The commander on board,
To begin once more…
Fold here.
The weight of words
On lined paper
To stabilize the flight.
