the message II

today I saw a plane
skywriting in clouds
and I waited with bated
breath for the message
to be revealed. at first
I thought it was just
a continuation of
a previous message
and I was missing something
that made it impossible
for me to understand
what it was trying
to say. but eventually I realized
that it wasn’t in English.
(or Spanish, Italian, French,
or any other language
I could even remotely

long story short? today I learned
that not every message
is meant for me.
