‘Lighting Up’

Here we go again
‘lighting up’
in the middle of the forest.

Just like the first time
or the many times after.
You used to tape your shoes
to the ground
to stop from flying
now we just strap you in.

I sit cross-legged
float upwards about 15 feet.

At first
when we did this
you would look at me
like I was crazy.
You’d say:
“There’s was way to much propulsion
for you to remain so low.”
Like I’d fly straight up
into the atmosphere
disappear forever.
(maybe that’s what

Now you look at me with caution
still unbelieving
but willing to allow me
to build upon something
I tell you
I can control.
