Sometimes Tang Isn't Enough


I cannot appear to locate how to emerge as the greatest inclination of myself
Only catching sporadic glimpses from time to time
in the love from somebody else's eyes


My doubt, my hope, my fears

My loves and my passions sincere

in all their guarded glory


Oh, please do not acquire a library card

and borrow from these walls

if you do not intend to return the hand-written etchings


and if you don't return,

as is so often the case,

at least install a skylight and a rope as a passerby


I've been down here far too long

feeding on freeze-dried ice cream and Tang

to recall the splendor and depth of real sustenance


Oh love, you're such a beautiful premise

but far too often I cannot bear to pine for you anymore
