Backwards Question Mark

I told them, my back against the wooden
dock, staring, eyes wide in the lack of light.
If aliens came for me, I told them,
I would pick up and gladly go tonight.

Above us was that vast inviting sky.
Around us, the sweatshirt-and-flip-flops of 
late spring, we searched for constellations. High
above us we found Leo. How I love

the idea of escaping there. I stopped 
and asked do you ever flip the universe
in your head?  We are not lying on top 
of earth but hanging off the bottom. Curse

gravity for not letting me embark
into the crystal backwards question mark.
