An Emergency Landing In Your Hair

Planes got it into their heads
that they were better than ships,
but pride comes before a fall.
The sadness of victory
is unbearable.
In the darkness of your hair
glitter the tiny wrecks
of airships
and to the bottom of your eyes
sink sparkling mysteries.
- like the smile on your lips
I'm awaiting my opportunity.
