escape velocity (a love poem)

together we
erode the meaning of
escape
I

can no

longer
get away
from
shabby
university Ideas.

but the faster we put the car
into a fourth or fifth gear


and the swifter we go
to the victors

the more that we can go
towards each other
like the Saturn V
sailing through the

aeather
away from


the bounds that hold
us (and them)

towards
the gravity of
each
others
love
