Flying over Brooklyn without a Net

By Cat Jones


Standing naked in a window

over Brooklyn


Here in the hush

and unprotected

I am free.

Called down to street level

by mystery and light

chain links

and barbed wire

and I am on the outside


Geometry and melting forms

bits of murmured conversations

I am not part of

ego dissolving

and every so often a shudder wracks my body

regarding what was

and what wasn’t

and I am free.
