Keep the Change

You and me
are two dinosaurs
and our time
has run out.
Pity that we got lucky
and thoughtless survived.

Here below
we come in nowhere,
old-fangled,
starry-eyed,
delicate as an egg-shell.
Unreconstructed.

Side-by-side
we look at the sky,
squinting through
rockets’ blaze,
longing for times when the Moon
wasn’t for sale: $19.99 per acre.

    1. you’re not dim at all, fraggle! essentially what the poem is talking about is the tension that exists between the traditions of the past and the march of progress… and lovers getting caught in the middle of it all.
