Mars

The world is such an ugly place
So let’s both move to Mars
Just you and me and ecstasy
With the backdrop of the stars.
We can split a can of tuna
Inside a tiny crater;
Share half a bag of marshmallows
and save the rest for later.
We can sing our little hearts out
And speak our pretty minds;
Reenact the best of Shakespeare
Or do nothing but unwind.
We can wish upon a different star
Every single night,
Losing track and starting over,
Wishing hard with all our might.
We can share a kiss at midnight
Or at midday or at eight.
We can watch the world keep spinning.
We can wonder. We can wait.
~K.G.
