You build mountains

but from where you are

you say they look like falling

and cover your head

just in case they come crumbling down.

They are made of something I can’t break.


You sew us together

in a twist of words

until we don’t know our own

we just know we belong here.

Our ties have your fingerprints.


If you can reach past the ground you’re locked on

I want to lay dreams for
you like railroads

until there’s nowhere you can’t go.


You stepped to the air.

The stars said your name


and we all looked up.
