What curiosity can we house
within four walls

now that we’ve touched down
in the next backyard?

What prize will stay put
in partitioned space

and homestead there

and never dream
of the next room

content to be contained

and not instinctively
roam?

Screw the last 100 years of rocketry
and escape velocities
and load.

I’m getting there
on my own rocket

propelled by liquid
curlicues
hearts
and stars

thrust into the unknown

trajectories be damned

though I haven’t been chosen

watch the blue line
trailing from my candle
’cause I’m getting there.
