Lightning Bolts

You said the 'could have's and 'would have's

Were irrelevant

That the should haves mattered

I said we were lightning bolts

Electric and beautiful

From a distance we looked like threads of cotton

Or orange pith

Hanging delicate in the sky but we were

Dangerous and

Strong and


And always incapable of touching down

In the same place

At the same time.
