the fundamentals of skywriting

so you wanna be
a skywriter, huh?
you wanna be
above it all?

that’s fine, son.

to be so free
to send a message
to a crowd
so large
so far
beneath your feet
yet to remain
out of their reach
as they see
whatever it is
you want them
to see.

that’s all fine
and dandy.

but goddammit, kid,
you’ve just gotta
spell the words right,
and you goddam better
have somethin’ to say
worth looking up for.
