Where is “up” for you now
that you have slipped from our sight
but still find your way into our being

we have been above the clouds
and planted lunar footprints
and watched Voyager move beyond the heliosphere

all we saw was a vast lonely world
not a trace of your friendly face
not even that visage in the rocks of Mars

So where is “up” for you, anyway?
Is it like a hypercube that we can’t construct
in our 3D world, but only see shadows of

or is it a furtive movement within
a shifting expanse in spacetime so that you
move beyond the infinite and wormhole your way back to us

and so your up has become a down
into our bodies and minds and heres and nows
and bread and wine and thanksgiving
