rocket flower
to the sky

up to the sun

rocket flower
still unfurled
fly me
up to
the moon

to mars

I know
I am fanciful
a pedestrian

I know
that flight
won’t really happen

but
rocket flower
you look so …

you look so …

take me away come on
let’s rise into the sky
and then beyond the atmosphere
into the dark
into the cold
of travelling somewhere
towards some-
other-
where

pretty flower
perhaps
if you would just
unfurl
for me

take me in
to take me
away

maybe that

maybe
only that
is adequate
to meet my needs

to meet
your needs

let us fly
by the quince
empowered
