congratulations

you invented the airplane again
it was invented almost
one hundred
years
ago

I felt you walk in the room
late and proud of your
achievement
I said not
a thing

I heard the wings flapping
outside and the engines
started and I knew
you were
going

I was in flight once I knew
that you would become
disenchanted and
bored with
me

these things seem to be dwindling
into the ink of the night
and the oil leaking
out of the
motor
