Poetry: Robert Fleming


Zoltar Make Me Twelve

what is now?

i want then

put me in a caterpillar glass bottle

who gets out?

pick a fender guitar

volumed by a box

turn up reverb

sing again sing

howl with my dog Penny

whose long long gone

re-see the first time

i saw a fish

dried up on a blue carpet

next to an aquarium

Zoltar make now then

zoom zuppai

zoom i am

am i a participant?

i am my zoom doom

Goodbye to Ground 

at thirty-three-thousand feet birds clouds

a Boeing seven-hundred-thirty-seven plane tailpipe signs Pauline

the plane’s pilot’s name in ash exhaust

two-hundred-fifteen strapped passengers in a plane shell

humans un-hatched

flight plan from Fresno to?

ground offered 9.8 m/s² gravity force

& plane spaces greater than 109’ 7” long / 12’ 4” wide / 13’ 2” high

open my irises to earth

from three-hundred-thirty-thousand feet Kármán line

to my next astronaut foot
