Test Pilot

First in flight
first with light
orbiting by noon
to landing on the moon
one small step for man
is the exercise plan,
for a child.
The Alpha dog
to the Omega cog
celebrates an advance
like a billboard of dance
you follow the leader
as a thread by a weaver-
you’re a child.
close in.
Mankind is a bridge
we’re ropes over a ridge
connects the divide
of the separation inside
the Lewis and Clark of history
tears apart our heart’s mystery-
silence the child.
