Outerspace Will Be Peaceful

from Moot Rock by Mark E. Deutsch



there are times
when I want to be alone
but right now
is not one of those times
do not listen to my songs
very closely
you won't find answers here
songs have to rhyme
there's not a thing in love
you'll find that isn't lonely
after closer inspection
see we're all made of sighs

there's a town
that I'm from
and I live there
all of the people
I once knew here are gone
but there are friends
and there are family
and neighbors
on my block even
but they're not my own
I want to shout out in favor
in favor of something
but my yes engine's blown

this whole world
is made of shifting volcanoes
one moment you're a boxer
and the next one a yawn
my experience
has taught me
and I'll tell you now
in the play you're an actor
in the boardgames a pawn
still sometimes
I stay laughing for hours
feeling just right where I belong
in the future outerspace will be peaceful I'm sure
the sun may be dying but the earth's dead and gone
