plays now’s the time
and you believe you can fly
you have discovered the magic flute
to propel you, to cut through 
the tightened seal of time and space
you can transverse the complications of your
diminution here
what your imagination will not allow
your body memory will remember
that you were of wings after all
riding the north wind
across these hemispheres
making the seasons
