How Long, How Long

how long, how long
would we bounce on

living on frog’s feet
to taste those stars
sweet in the eye
happiness hung
upon aching legs

how long, how long
would we dream on
giving shapes
of beauty and reason
to our emptiness

so long, so long
till our backs itch
from rusty flakes
of wings
we never flapped
