Sailing

I sail my paper boat across your sea,

A fragile craft, and sailing fearfully,

And when I sink, as soon I surely will,

Oh, let me sink through you and rest awhile.

I fly from you as on a sparrow’s flight

Across these sunlit days from night to night,

And when I fall unnoticed, as I must,

Be you my crowded street, my pavement dust.
