Flight Plan

Let’s speak to each other
in the language of paper airplanes,
bend our edges in to meet
and fold the quiet into shapes,

mold our wings according
to the soft geometry of handmade things.
Let’s use our time aloft to catch our breath
and clear the air before we yaw,

pamper back the creases in our rumpled craft
and fly some more.
