FROM MY GONDOLA

balloon over the Hamptons

M Functioning #59 Aug.7/13

High above the city, we float in silence
save the firing of the flame that keeps
our balloon inflated and we afloat
There is nothing to compare with seeing
familiar places from a bird’s-eye vantage
How tiny the malls look, and the man-made
lakes…Oh! And is that our house?
Even the Parliament buildings look like toys
And the Muttart’s pyramids are flattened
to reflecting glass…
Actual birds seem to regard us with amusement
Can birds show mirth or skepticism…I wonder
