7 9 13                       he took a bow overlooking interstate 680:

                                           car-comets in full spin,
                                                          orbital lights

                                                  his dreams planetary, saturnian -

                                          he almost sprouted wings that night and
                                   i cannot say it would not be beautiful;

                             the palpations of downtown pumping
                             luminous cells, coursing
                                       through highway veins
                       
                    and he, standing in the heart of his world
             visions galactic
                             mind ecstatic -

                                                                his feet began

                                                                to lift just a little.

a few phone calls
and a pair of lost glasses later
i am glad
that he is still terrestrial.
please don't leave me in this human dimension

Update 11/15/13: Wow, my first DD! :o Thank you so, SO much to `NicBelroque for suggesting and ^Beccalicious for the feature! I'm more than honored!

Unfortunately though, I was not expecting this much traffic on such a personal poem about my friend. Therefore I am renaming this poem (and the other two inspired by him) and taking his name out of the titles for the sake of his privacy. I apologize to my readers because I feel like there is less power and intimacy without his name, for his name truly holds a lot of meaning to me and captures his identity as a person.

Wow. This is so gorgeous. And while I do agree that a name would have made it feel more personal, I think that having it this way makes it more relateable to others. :heart: Congrats on the DD! You deserve it.
