Judy Halebsky – Ⅳ

Ocean Beach to Tokyo 





One plane went off the runway in Denver

and one into the Hudson


you dry a starfish on the window sill

wrap it in tissue for my carry on


we fall at the same speed

a jar with lightening bugs

a belt buckle

a stamped letter

a leaf without wind


STDs travel in packs

and planes crash in 3s


Brenda Hillman says three is predictable

do something else


I would fall for you with branches

with asteroids, feathers, pollen spores

petals, parking tickets



a plane      could crash

we                could survive



I would


as in

I could
