Empty Space


a spherical planet
in empty space
light fragments of energy
bounce from object to object
all the same
a trampoline warps and bends
as the fat kid jumps
causing the smaller objects
to detour their paths
circling the sun
circling the pretty girl on the trampoline
everyone pretending they don’t care
when everyone there
wishes they had the guts
to talk to the girl
and talk to the sun
and ask why they care
about the girl
and about the sun
energy particles dance through the window
and shine light on the girl’s face
i lie with her
and with the sun
on a spherical planet
in empty space
