from A Small Arrival by Swale



Panasonic radio waterlanding. Tree tops, body bags, little cars. 22A. Safety card in the back of the seat in the back of the plane. Now there’s no one left to blame. The sky is open, your eyes are open. Green sky microphone. Glass of beer. Blue grass plastic headphones on the back of the ear. Through a crack air is leaking. Your eyes are empty. The sky is leaking, the air is empty. Waterlanding wide blue field. Someone should take a bow. Your fall is everybody’s fault: on the ground looking up, taking off, touching down. The sky is open, your eyes are open.
