Blast Off

how do they stay
so metered

the balance eludes me

i crave the crescendo
peaking and falling

wave after breaking wave

in rational moments
i long for grounding
envy their patience
their consistency

i even try it on for size

it feels sweet and smooth
but it won’t stick

before long the costume
drops to my feet

as i blast off

to the next great thing
