Attack and Release

it lifts me up

the world around me is turning

into a tiny ant world

and your crazy smile

inflates this feeling of weightlessness

and what the hell man

i know empirically

you’re not special

i’m not special

but there have been times

when i could not remember

what the ground even feels like

if i am eventually caught

in the firs above a mountain range

and grow a tangled beard around my teeth

i will think numbly of this feeling once in a while

while i’m drinking my coffee

even if i try not to

and wonder what you think
