what we are defined by what we are not.

A Poem by burning paper planes

im not sure this makes sense, but it seemed ok when i wrote it.


like a car with faulty breaks

we are heading for the edge

and like a bird which cant flap

its featherless wings

we are falling with iminent impact


and like a sentence written

t r                   n i n

    a            e e        g

       m p o l

off the line, we sprawl across the world

with inky eyes and drying hearts

and we feel not but the wind on our

skinless faces and the lack of sails

for it to fill.
