In The Clouds

Shattered shards of mirrors

Lie randomly on the ground

The horizon disturbingly low

Yet distantly spectacular


The evidence of humanity’s need to feel in control

Is clear to see from up here, in the clouds

Planned communities

Artificial corners, an attempt to make ”man-made” appear from nature


All the things we worry about

Yet somehow flying at 30000 feet in a steel tube is not one

This is natural, this is normal

This is one of the great privileges of our time
