The Astronaut

The Astronaut

 

On the morning

of the day

they are going

to shoot him

to the moon

the astronaut

wakes up yawns

and stretches

then remembers

he must leave

his children

his wife who

awake now

yawns and then

remembers too

his penis especially

doesn't want to go

into all that

cold black space

it wants to stay

right here

where it's warm

but if

he's going

to have to

go it sure as hell

is going too
