Heavy Things

by Denver Buston

the world cannot bear the weightlessness of sparrows

or the confetti of our illegible addresses

the moon’s breathless ascent

the world cannot bear it

so the world makes heavy things

like airplanes

and skyscrapers

like your heart

and heavy things fall down

because the world cannot bear them either
