At a respectful distance.

comedy
Exosphere Feb 2021
history is a comedy
of things that felt right
the world was flat
we were at the center
there was no such thing as atoms or molecules or bacteria
god existed
it’s all very funny now

preferences
Exosphere Apr 2021
I just don’t want to be hit in the head
with a baseball bat
when I’m not looking
so if you’re going to hit me in the head
with a baseball bat
make sure I’m looking

fine line
Exosphere Mar 2021
you need a certain amount of magical thinking
to penetrate the reality of the world
but just enough
to inform the development of your technology
and empirical studies
and no more

this is a challenge
which is why there is such a fine line
between nutcase
and genius
402 · Apr 2021
I love you
Exosphere Apr 2021
I don’t know if you are large
or small
I just know reality bends around you
...
which means you are very dense
...
woops sorry, that one got way from me, the conclusion ****** me in (pun intended) but I started out trying to say: ... (clears throat) ... I love you

my thing
Exosphere Jan 2021
you did my thing for a while
then I did your thing for a while
(sorry I wasn’t so good at your thing)
but I figure it’s my turn now again anyway
383 · Jan 2021
Good run
Exosphere Jan 2021
There’s only one thing better than ***, drugs, or meditation
And that’s a good run in the middle of the night
with your tunes just slammin’
That moon is a bonus

knowing
Exosphere May 2021
I suspect there’s a huge part of me
you would never have understood
I wouldn’t even have shared it with you
to be honest
it’s just unfortunate
you went stomping through it
like a rhinoceros
in a field of wildflowers

drunk fireflies
Exosphere Mar 2021
you excited my thoughts
which then swooned about

modern fetish
Exosphere Apr 2021
I just stare at the screen
the screen itself
—not any of the contents on it—
just the screen
an object of fantasy and lust
which is quite a modern fetish
277 · Jan 2021
stick it out
Exosphere Jan 2021
you’re right, though
I don’t plan on going anywhere now
he’s gone from my dreams
and you’re a faceless monster
I’ll stick it out with the carpenter
as long as I can

loving
Exosphere Mar 2021

to care
but the question is unfair
from one has never
touched my hair
or left his lair
or returned, in person
my loving stare

Exosphere Apr 2021
hazy thoughts
sleepy limbs
groaning bones
groaning alone
your face
in my mind
saying sleep
stay
snuggle

what’s your game?
Exosphere Feb 2021

don’t worry
Exosphere Feb 2021

Exosphere Mar 2021
I thought you were going to slay some dragons
...when?
when were you going to do that?
I saved some for you
like you asked
226 · May 2021
take it easy
Exosphere May 2021
don’t hit your head
on a button that’s red
because if you’ve seen the commercials
that’s supposed to be the “easy” button

goofy ears
Exosphere Jan 2021
I used to love your ears
you have big goofy ears
I suppose they match my weird smile
and strange face
but none of that matters now
187 · Feb 2021
you’ll persist
Exosphere Feb 2021
once you’ve been cut down
I’m not sure it’s true
you’ll come back bigger
and stronger
I’m not sure
wiser, maybe
(more cynical?)
but stronger?
I don’t know

you’ll persist
this is all I know
so far
you’ll persist

yummy snacks
Exosphere May 2021

I just take a long gentle nap
and wake up refreshed in the lovely day
full of colorful cozy question marks
and yummy snacks
