PHONE LINES

It can make me feel I’m flying

This high eagle’s full-wing sirrus arcing

It’s just after our congress convenes our session

I still stand up still not talking.

You can make me feel I can’t fly

You just want us, still, on a sure line

Too distant  to walk.

  1. I think the opening two lines are the best. They are strong images.

  2. I love how the internal conflict is expressed—willing to fly but hindered from even walking there. It made me think of the song “The Eagle and the Hawk” by John Denver…”all that we can be and not what we are”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ArnbiHx6hk
