We are flying together, covering ground.
Huge lungs become mine,
Hearts pounding together, we go.
Swirled masses of raw, power
Tightly wrapped thick bones.
Thin metal, held lightly in place
Grips tiny nails, pounding the ground
Muscles expand rapidly
Rippling a roaring frame
Front end soars
He pulls himself forward,
His front feet thrust out.
He is in a leisurely gear.
A quick signal and he is stretching out
Muscles are winding tighter and reaching further
Hurling harder, faster
Ears perked, hair lashes out
Nostrils flared, eyes wide
The large figure floats, he flies.
His legs become my legs
My heart becomes his
Our eyes searching for the same thing
We fly together.
To places we couldn’t alone.
