and then she starts singing

by blake ellington larson

and i’m flying above a sailboat

and the sky is clear
and the wind is angry

but the bats
and all the albatross
swim and sing and
frolic in the air with me

and the ripples in the ocean become real
and my feet are dangling off the edge of the world

and i’m realizing that

all the love in the world
is this
and all the sorrow in the world
is this

and like the shiny thing
i drop into the water
she disappears
