Never Belong To Me - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Scars of this impotent fjord make me spill my
And everyday is done,
And I have ridden through the hours and counted
On my fingers that it was fun,
And the waves go on forever lapping,
Repeating the multiplexes of my rum;
And the days go on forever,
And the tent breathes with the children of the gun,
And I think of you and put you in the runny aquatics
Of my masticated truancies;
And I’ve said your name and called you out,
And you are so beautiful,
And I suppose I want to tell you that you are so beautiful:
You are so beautiful and it is fun to tell you
You are so beautiful,
Like floating, like being a super hero, and a success
Science experiment,
As I try to look into your eyes from several states over,
Even though I am not,
And all I can hope for is to punch dream so anonymous
Children between the thighs of a likewise anonymous women,
Like a voting ballot while thinking about you
And biting my tongue,
Like working on a stolen car between the clefts of godly,
Oh so f%cking godly mountains
That will never belong to me….
