Gagarin says, in ecstasy,
he could have
gone on forever
 
he floated
ate and sang
and when he emerged from that
 
one hundred eight minutes off
the surface of
the earth he was smiling
 
Then he returned
to take his place
among the rest of us
 
from all that divison and
subtraction a measure
toe and heel
 
heel and toe he felt
as if he had
been dancing
