The wheel creaks

                                and strains

 

Beneath they all look so worried as they shout up that I shouldn’t be.

 

They don’t understand, they don’t grasp what it means for me.

 

Being above trapped

                                in a squeaking straining cabins?

 

It’s not trapped at all.

 

Down there, that’s the banal.

 

Here I’m free

                                I’m flying.

 

On the ground? The rules, the don’t’s, the must nots

 

A victim of everyone’s demands and thoughts.

 

I’d rather here

                                stuck but soaring.
