Airplane Jane

To fly with Jane
across the sky
glide amidst the sea
open the sheet of notebook paper, I see....

To fly with Jane
feel weightless in air 
be suspended through thrashing wind
with the sheet of notebook paper, I bend....

To fly with Jane
at heights of total bliss 
recall towns of old
with this part of notebook paper, I fold...

To fly with Jane
let away all worries
recycle these thoughts
with this small part of notebook paper, I tuck....

To fly with Jane
through times so troubled
release those peevish concerns
with that part of the notebook paper, I turn....

To fly with Jane
underneath valleys of green
travel past cray canyon dip
with the final part of the paper, I flip....

To see
to bend, to fold
to tuck, to turn
to flip-- to create

The only way to fly 
is to make Jane's device
of the sky--as have I
