Sometimes We Fly Together Beyond The Milky Way

Sometimes
when you are the kite
I toss you over the clouds

And sometimes
when you don’t come down
you hold my breath for hours

Sometimes
when you are the wind
and I'm flung to a far frontier

you haul me home
in the nick of time
and I’m back in your atmosphere

Sometimes
when I reel you in
and I get to the end of the string

you look so strange
with stars in your eyes
and gems where your mouth should be

Sometimes

Ah, sometimes
we fly together
beyond the milky way

and we float
in the fabulous firmament
where God and the angels play
