Impossible To Steer, But Lovely

The Encyclopedia of the Exquisite

is the title of the book

tossed among the tattered romances

on the free table at the library.

The page you opened to read:

“In truth, the hot air balloon

was lovely but impossible to steer.”

which describes more  than this unlikely book

finding your harried hands.

Take comfort in messages that

rise and travel and land, eventually.

Put down those tightly-clutched maps.

Instead of plotting course corrections

deep into every night,

notice how the stars glow as you glide by.

Call this life what you’ve suspected for some time:

Impossible to steer, but lovely.
