Magnetic Boots

In Destination Moon the astronauts don their
magnetic boots once they reach earth orbit.
A poet does not have that luxury. A poet is not
bound to the ground. He is torn apart by
astral forces. He is a lunatic. The poet is affected
by the moon every day and night. He is ruled
by passing comets, asteroids, distant stars.
Words spill out of him, his scarecrow arms
are full of poems, desperate, inane poems.
A poet can not solve the problem by donning
his magnetic boots.

Nice imagery here. Not sure about 'grounded to the ground' though. I thought of 'bound to the ground' - that's a bit better I think but you might want to have a think about it.
