star beam


one-line pen and ink drawing

I caught a star beam and tied it down;
put on my star shoes then left the ground.
On that light rope through the sky,
I walked the heavens as if I died.
The sun, in rising, thinned my beam
and to the earth I fell unwinged.
But right before my fatal crash,
I woke in bed with a gasp.
