sometimes
i like to just
show-off
do a spin
or two
against
the dark blue sky
for no particular reason
i find
most humans
spend so much time
wondering about life’s meaning
and their place in it
pondering
deep philosophical points
their eyes focused on books
missing the landmarks
and scenery
along the way
counting down
to doomsday
not knowing
if heaven is to the left
or right
so
i’ve taken it upon myself
to have
a little sky party
in their behalf
nothing fancy
a few white puffy clouds
and the breath of angels

as night falls
i stare
into the approaching darkness
i can smell the fear
thick as fog
humans
locking their doors
not from the beast
of the night
but from
each other
