I'm Not Afraid of Drowning

I saw a fire go by overhead tonight.
it didn't flash like a plane
it was too large for a satellite

it drifted overhead soundlessly,
over Main St and 31
like a bonfire in flight.

Everybody's out tonight,
but they don't see hawks,
they don't see nature.

they're all stuck
in their own little worlds,

afraid they'd drown in the sky
if they looked up.
