Bird’s Eye View


Float across

that wide, bright horizon.

Bird’s eye view

of the whole world.


Some say,

“Get some distance

and you will see the problem.”

But from up here,

everything looks fine,

even too quiet.


If you listen,

you’d expect

Hell on Earth,

fire and brimstone,

but instead,

all that I can see


cars, and shops, and homes.


Where’s the chaos?

Where’s the smoke?

We believe

things move so fast,

but from up here,

we’re slow.
