No Parking

Post by audiofool » Tue Feb 06, 2018 9:14 pm

The police paid a visit today
they said I wasn't a suspect
just a person of interest
I chuckled to hear that

there was a fire in the
block of apartments next door
arson is being given
due consideration

I put out the flames
doused the fire
a long time ago
cold, wet ashes remain

I spent my lucky dollar today
on a bus ride to Mars
to retrieve the space capsule
that was illegally parked

all that I have left
to remind me of someone
alien and strange
part of the internal landscape

this is my vehicle now
I am driven to succeed
to get from point A to point B
in a safe, efficient manner

time travel, sure OK
back to the genesis event
forbidden fruit and talking snake
consequences of instant attraction

I loved you most
for your ability to
take something trivial
and produce a modern marvel

it is a wonder indeed
that we somehow survived
the crash and landed safely
in the fetal position on earth

when we are bones
and electronic images
filed in brain circuits
we will have arrived at last

so, Junior
when you read this message
take courage from the knowledge
we didn't know any better
