How to Fly, by Cory McClellan

Tell no one where you’ve buried the map of your feet.
Maintain your invisible stealth.
On streets where people move in pairs,
keep your failed attempts off secret runways
in the hush-hush pockets of your raincoat.
There are unexplored atmospheres inside the Pectoralis minor grooves
(descended from pterodactyls)
where aeronautics remain dormant.
If no one sees you walk
they can’t prove you’re on the ground.
