penny in a castle

A digital chapbook.

Now we are six

Six years ago you came into the world

Arms outstretched

Conducting an invisible orchestra

Marching to a drummer no one else could hear

That has never changed

You always run for the edge of the cliff

And we wonder why you lack judgement

Why run towards the fall?

The crash and the consequence

It’s only now I begin to realize

That it is that moment of flying

That the rest of us can’t see

Six is said to be the age of reason

I hope it is when we all grow wings
