"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.
