A thousand multi coloured paper aeroplanes launched from a skyscraper

A thousand multi coloured paper aeroplanes launched from a skyscraper

You said it was littering
the last thing I thought
you would have thought
you didn’t see the skyscraper
a giant stained glass window
shattering into colours
the soft fingers of the sun
that folded and unfolded
the thousand wings

a thousand miles away
a cobalt plane
shrapnel from the sky
embedded in your garden
dissolving in the rain
bleeding its blue
into your grass
