(Paper) aeroplane

Fly towards the rising sun

Red fat disc draped in silk

As abrupt as the flutter of paper wings

As the small plane is thrown

so it launches

to drift in the quiet air


Pink and milky city

the orange haze glows before

erupting above a grey-blue, gold bathed bed

thick and heavy as the echoed terrain below

and mountain islands are lapped by a stratus sea
