Substitute another Paradigm

Moored to leaden masonry?
Leap, sprawl
Unravel the cords 
Loosen the cummerbund
Let time squat
on the horizon 
Pause
Wait
Weightless for flight

  2. I love the line.."Let time squat on the horizon" it created innumerable images in my mind. A giant, a troll, e.e.cummings, oh so many things could squat on that horizon. Wonderful piece of writing,
