Lisa Samuels' move

a visa delay in your new new zealand
paper airplanes send
through all of it leaning encounters; reclamation
& desire

a narrative fronts accountability
paradise acts & reacts, an equal opposite
leaving milwaukee, marks on scorched bleeds
& glistens earth

a box is held & packed to the line
a solidarity, grief of words & before your hands
the air a solid stuck in the ground

when it finally an endless rise
taking pictures of flightless birds & host of suns
declaring itself a finer promise of blue

when the globe finally declares itself flat
& we can offer a flip side we can see,
actual size

if anything would you write when you land
