One Minute at the Equator

Light lifted me briefly
to the bands of color
my eyes could not discern.

A flock of birds
gently flew around
the impediment I made
in the sky.

Whenever fear
attempted to sink me
I revisited loving you.

As clouds arrived
their light set me down
on a patch of earth
thick with tracks.

This levitation lasted
long enough
for the earth
to rotate me
seventeen point two-nine miles
from my starting place.
