altitude drawing by lurmyou aspire to greatness—i won’t tell you no

tilt your chin just a little more. that helps you stay above it all

just a little more …
but now it’s too high

and now you’re so much less than you want to be
you’re even farther above it all

but so am i and so are all these other nobodies

strapped in rows [please remain seated]

like the animals we don’t want to believe we are
and here, above it all, you lose sight of yourself

too caught up in your attempts to breathe
a slave to your physical limitations

a hostage to your fears

a prisoner of your weaknesses
just like me and all these nobodies

but on the ground, we’re above them all.

aren’t we, friend?
