false flight

Caged BirdSpanish Air Force Dassault Mirage III EE
Museu de les Ciències Príncep Felip Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències
Valencia, Spain

off we go,
into the wild, blue yon….


the sky’s the….

glass and steel.
Those are limits.

this jet
going no place fast

vast expanse of windows
a tease

visions of what once was.
what could be again?

freedom to fly
can be an illusion

there is more out there
– infinitely more –

but we are here
inside looking out

a museum piece
finds its worth in memory

but memories of freedom
won’t fly anymore

break some windows
twist some steel girders
