Fun Fact

Dirigibles flew so low
that windows could open

one might smoke a cigarette
leaning out over the ocean

one might feel the sea spray
if the pilot flew low enough

if the pilot flew low enough
one might feel the comfort of earth

while never touching the ground

hanging perfectly
in the balance

I picture a sloe-eyed woman with kohl rims, a fox stole (head, legs, tail still attached), matte red lipstick on her cigarette holder. A dark haired man with a sharp moustache beside her. But she barely notices him.
