Skydive by Allie Marini Batts

I will never ask you to step out of the sliding door of an airplane,

to free-fall through the clouds

with only an altimeter and your faith in the parachute’s packing

to guide you back down to earth,

for you to tumble the miles of ozone and sky

as proof that you are brave enough to love me as much as you love

the solidity of the dirt beneath your boots.

I will only ask that you are brave enough to jump
