To the Moon and Back

I’d travel to the moon and back‬
‪To watch you wake at dawn‬
‪To see you cuddle in our blankets‬
‪To rumple up your hair‬

‪But time can’t change the craters‬
‪The endless tears or scars‬
‪The void that stands between us‬
‪The emptiness we share‬

“The thing is”
said the familiar road
“we’ve been here before”
and all the signs
said “slow”
and all the signs
said “stop”
and “look”

home to battered old books,
living under the bed
will be emptied, filled
and used again.

How hard can it be

crust of gold leaf
herbs from the amazon
meat from Mongolia
sauce beneath
the Great Barrier Reef
cooked in Etna,
easy as that
