"Meadow Planet" by Kajsa Palacios

There’s a rolling grass sea somewhere on the surface.

Full of sextant blades,

angled just accurately enough.

They measure how many bolts of silk it takes

to stitch into a sail

and take to the air.

They measure how many ribbons of gossamer I need

to catch the breeze

and how many days it takes to meet you there.
