Alis volat propriis

She flies with her own wings.

  • Some nights when you have gone to sleep
    I go up to the roof and look for my pilot star,
    my navigation star, my guideline,
    my trajectory, the place I am heading
    when I stretch out my arms
    and leap off the roof
    and leave this silly planet behind.

    Once I find it, I could go anywhere.
    Fling myself out into the black sea,
    skip upon every world whirling around the sun:
    angry Jupiter, mysterious Saturn,
    the frozen pebble of silent Pluto.
    I could just keep going, out beyond the asteroids,
    out past the dusty corner of everything
    humans have ever known,
    into the dark, into the dark,
    until I find out where space ends
    and nothing begins.

    I never find it, my pilot star.
    It is not there.
    I will search and stare and hunt
    for my pilot star until the night is almost spent
    and then I will go in and lie down next to you,
    next to the smell of your hair,
    the heat of your body, the shape of you,
    and I will know why.

    Jupiter has its storms
    and Saturn its rings
    and forgotten Pluto cold secrets,
    but only the Earth has you.

    I don’t need ‘perfect’.

    Whatever I have with you

    is more than enough.
