On the MoonSomewhere on the moon is a picnic basket.
You leaned against the black monolith
and I leaned against the crashed capsule.
We ate a meal of heart-shaped sandwiches.
It is so bright on the moon that your pupils turn to pinpricks
and the stars vanish.
So you can understand why it was hard to see you
against the monolith,
against the infinity draped along the lambent lunar curve.
We put on our star goggles to see clearer.
I showed you the fire the wise men followed.
You pointed out the comet that would boil away the oceans.
We watched the earth appear.
When I tried to put it in my pocket,
you stopped me,
saying it would only end up
My VoiceI will not apologize for the train wreck
You brought all that baggage
Now you sort through it
Because now I'm hunting for my voice, see
I got tired of all the parallels
So I uprooted tracks to grow ladders out from stairwells
My voice might be up here in these mountains
Echoing between griffons' nests
Or nestling between a goddess' breasts.
No, I'm getting confused again
Just two soft hills I passed when I used to take the train.
I will not apologize for stealing the bed sheets
You taught me to make a parachute just in case
When what I needed were sails to visit space in my starship
My voice twists tongues with the su
"Men"I saw a door in the hall
No other specifications,
Opening the door,
I walked into a testosterone-thick box
Packed with these "MEN."
They were all shoving, flexing, bragging, burping,
Slapping each other on the back,
Laughing up thick walls of identity between themselves.
Wads of compact muscle and attitude
Leaned against the stalls, smoking.
They wanted me to join in.
They offered beer and magazines,
Televisions and loud opinions.
I declined, backing out,
Keep in Touch!
