which some minutes after takeoff
violently shook and then plummeted toward earth—
him being sad, not over his impending death, but having just won the lottery

Poetry form: Fibonacci - The number of syllables in each line must equal the sum of the syllables in the two previous lines resulting in 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21... which is the fibonacci sequence. The last line of 21 syllables in this poem may appear as more than one line because of space restrictions on mobile devices and smaller screens. Ah, the Romanesque broccoli spirals of the fibonacci sequence!
