Pink paper aeroplanes

The page is blank?
look!
not a smudge of ink,

if you blink
you’ll miss nothing
because there’s nothing
here to miss.

someone says,
‘that’s a bit Kaiser’
what the fuck does that mean?
I’m none the wiser.

the answer?
it’s probably in the dreams that
we try to connect with
where
everything’s acceptable,

I can never remember them.
