They said it was THE planet
where everything is just right…Ha
just another case of the grass is always
Turns out, it was no more than a star.
I have no doubt that somewhere
in the far reaches of the cosmos, exists a race
that is entertained by our ignorance.
Perhaps they’ve already found the end of the rainbow
and already know that somewhere in the great vastness
of space, there are two snowflakes exactly alike.
I bet they are never fogged in when the Perseids
make their grand display, nor would they ever
be away when that long awaited package
had to be signed for. Furthermore, I bet the phone
never rings when they are in the shower.
That special time that’s all their own.
How many hours do you suppose they waste a day?
Such issues don’t really keep me awake at night,
but they do have me wondering.
what I really care about is their iambic feet
and the possibility of poetry
out of this world.
