like small fish wanting to eat light.

In that moment, we’re up in the air,

eyes wide, our mouths open, our

deep, we long for the breach,

when in the air, we dread the

fall. But this is life: the leap for

light, startled to find each other,

the plunge back down, the leap

for light, startled to find each

other… Listen… We are coming.
