Ginny Ip

thrice
floating around the sun
a half-formed thing in rioting wind
feet rooted here but
headspace over there
too dizzying to love anywhere
from a distance.

twice
ricocheting between worlds
a growing thing in planetary ring
wilting here but
blossoming over there
a mass-made melancholy everywhere
from a distance.

once
uprooting herself
became a complete thing
neither here
nor really there
but replanted elsewhere
and from a distance.
