Curated by Judy Gaudet
I’m going to get the ladder from the shed,
prop it against the moon, climb up,
sit on a cloud. Roll around, maybe.
When a passing eagle does a double take,
I’ll say, “How do you like them apples?”
And when starlings gather into a murmuration,
I’ll lie at the edge with my hair dangling down
to catch the swooshed air of wings.
