AIRBORNE, ESSENTIAL

E. Kristin Anderson

 

                  Bigger than ever,

ruins expanded,       an emergency

growing a galaxy in late accomplishments.

 

You turn, point, seek out the dark.

She begins, rolling,

                              explosive.

 

Boots double through clouds, cutting hits.

 

With a jolt, you defy barriers, wave the air,

the ground.                 Send out three;

              you solid blast.
