Everything I wrote was imaginary
Things never happened that way
If you ask her
She didn’t come along for the ride
As I said many times
So, she’s told me to leave her out
Not to mention her name
not Even in the credits—
(to be clear)
I alone landed on the MOON
And only pictured her
Looking up from earth
reflected in the visor of my suit
Never really there—
I made the entire story up
But everyone liked the poem.
thought it was inspired. Maybe genius
And admitted to the possibility
at least of the two of us in love.
