Poetry: Use By Eternity

Poetry Use By Eternity

you know you
want to
it’s been sucking
you dry for eons
so drink
from the well
of your soul

people
and places
and things
drained it
dry as bones
dead as Tut

I dare say
worse than
Hiroshima
why? because
you weren’t there
might as well
have been
with your resolve
and all that
just check the
directions again
see?

says
right here:
Use By Eternity

scared?
I bet you’d rather
buy the box now
or vase
or plot
bury yourself
deep
the worms won’t mind
it’s free chow
to them

besides easy
come easy go
what if you
just went ahead?
excuse me,
I’m taking it
back now you’ve
messed it up
can’t even recognize
the beginning from
the end anymore

thanks though
guess that’ll be it
Is that going
to be
a problem?
don’t know about
you
but I’m taking
a unicycle to
the universe

bought my helmet
it’s dangerous in
the Milky Way
but I’m sure I
still have
the map I was given
me myself and
I
are going

if you care to
join me but
you’ll need your own
damn unicycle
and for God’s
sake (or whomevers)
bring a helmet

cause it’s rough
going home
always is
but once you
pass
the belt
smooth sailing
