First Love


.

I’m falling
for you
falling falling
the ground’s given way
I’m tumbling sprawling
space space —my mind
my heart, my heart
is in a parabolic arc
devoid of time and gravity
I float I float
I’m in a massless boat
sailing sailing
gravity’s truth is failing
I’ve come apart, I’m flailing
flailing
up is all around
it’s merged with down
if I weren’t so glad
I’d certainly be wailing
