Gonna Fly Now

It’s counting seven

as you inhale

the skin by

your wrist

reddening

your cheeks

squinting

your eyes

grunt

and releases

to eight

before

realizing

the set

was to

twelve

and shaking

your fingers

against

the deadly

static

of the metal

coursing

inside

our very

blood.

This is the 100 Songs Project, a 100-day writing challenge based on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs. Every day, I write a short poem, prose piece, or play based on, reacting to, rejecting, accepting, or doing something related to one of the songs in the top 100 list.
