like the albatross or palm branch.
Force equals mass times acceleration, right?
Drag, lift, thrust somehow add up to launch,
but how does the albatross or palm branch
uncouple or uproot enough,
shed draft to lift and thrust enough to launch?
For her elemental shift is just as rough.
Can she uncouple or uproot enough
to leave? Her aspect ratio must be what,
for such an elemental shift? It’s rough,
seemingly impossible, inertia’s hold, but
she will leave, her aspect ratio is what
force equals, weight and span can right
a seemingly impossible hold, but
slowly, she’s learned the metrics of flight.
