Intergalactic Valentine

Clearly earth’s the prison planet
where the disappointed lovers
are kept like way out in the desert
where there’s no point to escape
where they are entertained daily
with historical films of their lives
acted beautifully by local actors
I woke up dreaming what else
what longish legs the mockingbird
has I never noticed them before
a planet full of such brilliant
disclosures the endless tallying
of which eagerly misses the point
the prison planet where thought’s
the jailer and the lover sans parole
