Take Off

Take Off
September 2013
Michael Gollin


Take off into dawn
(a magnificent assent
of power and speed, elegant)

Across the bay
(a marvel and terror,
how humans shaped
the world below,
bridges and breakwaters,
roads and fields, fallow)

Golden sun glinting everywhere
(no poetry in airports,
but plenty in the air)

Tying all of this (and us) together.
