Poem about the Desire to Fly to Freedom

Marc Latham’s latest folding mirror poem is about a gnat, empathy, flight and freedom.   Here’s the poetry:
Not Love, Gnat Empathy
Banging your head against glass
third attempt on double glazing
I don’t like you
gnat on the window
but I empathise
with your attempt
to fly free
amongst nature
once again
window reflects desire
open air
outside there
no real horizons
an oyster world
I keep knocking
my imagination on glass
unable to take off
but I travelled three times
so I open the window.
