I Author My Own Disaster, Volume One, Part Six
From Anil Kaya’s short film Paper Plane, September 2008; location unknown
My words to him
They didn’t touch him, not at all
And I never can say what I mean to say
Small planes are here
But they never leave my room at all
They don’t make it through
They don’t make it out
I am not discouraged.
Even though I am a bit bruised and my arms are aching from desire and imagining I am not discouraged.
I continue to send my satellites up and into the air.
I continue to run to meet the world.
