People are a letdown.
Why, just the other day, a friend said goodbye
indefinitely as he sank into the ocean. He waved
and said to come visit when I grew gills.
(Never mind it’s taken me a millennium to grow wisdom teeth!)
Yes, people and their promises –
Let’s fly to Portland, let’s fly to Europe,
Mumbai, Afghanistan, Sardinia.
Let’s fly to Mars, so I can choke on someone else’s concept of space!
