dubious apogee

fallen off the earth 


(who would have guessed 

escape velocity to be this slow?) 


except to birds and dogs 

I cast a shadow 

it's tossed right back to me 

slowly pinwheeling 

not peddling any more 

or any less 

solar wind tugs 

my shirt sleeve 

makes me think 

about what I believe
