Glass Girl

by Steven Kenworthy

you walk
like a robot
because your bones are sore.

two three four your steps are slow
march 1 2 3 your birthday is coming up
this years the year to fix up
the rocketship
the new design just in

glass girl
i love your crooked dance
like a slow techno beat in slow motion

take your time in getting dried
i know your heart is strong
white and red

take a spin in
paper i’ve built you this plane
ten thousand to none

so few come here to walk up the aisles,
crystal castle

don’t get wet


Author's Note: i don't expect anyone to like this, but i do. the astronauts do too

I agree... I throughly enjoyed this! The personal SK style always comes through in your poetry. I am always encouraged by your writing.

I would suggest not critiquing your own work as this one is, in my humble and most unqualified opinion, is , although still an original and wonderful write, better than your"...airlines" poem. Great piece.
