Five Hundred Fifty-Five Feet

Up there, the feet lie on the floor
on the room on the sixth floor
upon many floors of this building.

The feet lie on the floor
but not on the surface
of the earth, as if elevating
as if levitating as if imagining
as if flying. The irony

of measuring how far
you are to me by the feet
lying on air, above me.
