Future Flight

Craig Kurtz

Such a propitious
start, a bottle-rocket
riff. You’ll need
zig-zagging eyes to
savvy her. She flies
w/ theremin flares.

What a fortuitous
way to go, transistor
feathers. Add another
motor, her airport
accommodates comets.
Pretty anomalous.

Serendipitous, and now
hear this, she syncopates
with catawampus wings.
You’ll board the confetti
express: extinguish all
presagements, please.

So prodigious, listen up,
she strings silver flames
w/ quasar wire. Take the
escalator, better late
than never, & fasten
your system.
