The Notion of Wings

Itís the notion of
wings, thatís what it is
More like flight the concept
or flying, a verb
Have you ever flown a verb?
Poets and lovers fly verbs all the time.
Itís the exhilaration, thatís what it is
straddling the latest verb soaring
bareback rider rodeoing space
landing with a thud, hard realization
rodeoing now requires redoing.
Shake off the stardust, mount up anew.
Itís the notion of wings and flying the verbs
Thatís what it is.

—Ed Coletti
