Victor Touche ? Actually, a 59 plus five year imposition on this planet. Who.... always wanted to slow down, explore the other side of his brain, and amount to something other than a paycheck. Of course the other side of me would argue paycheck first - more...

He is an accomplished poet and is currently at the #40 spot on this years rankings.

This work has reached the exceptional level
The jet engine
"A Historical Perspective" by victortouche
I walk as individual.
Internally, I emphasize this.
I am. Will be.

when the self
suddenly leaves-

Such as,
at moment of take-off
jet plane

Trap doors shut
Wind-mind diverted

And as we rise,
I become something else
A part of...

A part of us
Of history
The nascense
of jet engines

I see the Messerschmitt Me 262
The precipice
As my Nazi jet engine
lifts me skyward

The sacrifice of all before
I am humbled
Strangely, peace fills me

And I become...
a nation
I am America


Author Notes
Strange to have this poem erupt from me
during take-off.
All governments are inherently evil.

But the principles, upon which this country was founded,
bear witness to humanityĆ¢??s endless struggle for justice.

Thank you.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
