Asbach. by Mark Antony Rossi

The girl that got away
I let go

The romance of air flight
Was Far stronger

And though I missed
Her dark hair

I missed
The blue skies more

And how it received
My anxious body

High above
The highest clouds

Mother Earth
Is most boring

And My loft
An empty library

Where I smoke
And write

And baptize
my disappointment

In German brandy.
