The moon is bigger
When I stand on my toes
Am I the only one who understands
The rules of gravity?
If you fall, you’ll crush into me.
So is it silly to hold hopes
To climb the moon with ropes
To climb the moon with a ladder
When we’re there, we’ll know better.
I thought of us in clouds
And I licked my lips,
I thought of us in space
And I wrung my hands.
After a lifetime of solitude
The man in the moon has an opinion on everything.
We held our breath for the longest time.
