If Only You’d Render the Head as Intergalactic

How would we re-define “expansive”?

 

This is the only socially acceptable way

to drown now: a subsidy for space, paid

by the taxes of concrete atoms. Mouths

pried open in a stony trauma. Address

 

the grievances of eyelids burdened by

excessive gravity/

unbearable landlords/

unsightly graveyards

leftover from manic-depressive meteors.

 

If only your Manifest Destiny conquered

comets instead of cultures, or engulfed

disease instead of aliens: if only civility

 

included such institutional endorsements

to identify the corpses of

fellow planets/

Hello, fellow bundle of nerves and flesh! I'm a simple little being who's half-poet, half-scientist, and all gelatinous chaos. Sort of like an illogical marshmallow. If you'd like to learn more, please seek out the "First Impressions" page. Thank you for the visit, bundle friend.
