Requesting Re-entry

It’s been a million miles, at least

the thin blue line

of pen I’ve used

to write everything about you.

I’ve stretched to Jupiter and back,

coiled around the earth

with a ball point so slender

that it seems like the planet

is wrapped in twine

and I’m just trying

to tether you to my page

before you leave the orbit

of my mind forever,

and I run out of air.
