You Shoulda' Been an Astronaut!

Big fat lies
Ugliness
More ugliness
Writing
Written
Untold
True to the hour
that becomes the
day
Away
and
away
and
away.

Like some ugly wound
Premeditated
By some wise ol’
Head
That insists that
One will lose the
all of it all
And will have
to call upon
Something to heal
the being from outside;
At least the way is
Entrenched with
Little bitty shitty
bits of the
Great nothingness
of time and words,
Which are the same
anyway.

Like shallow floods in
Suburban yards;
Not to worry with
rubbers to keep
the pods dry and warm.





The poem "You Shoulda' Been an Astronaut!" by Alexander B. Nuttall was written in 1997 under the duress of Richmond, Virginia. Who knows really what was going on at the time or why he would title this work this way. However dysfunctional this poesy remains it is a march. It is a militant march into the day. It a progressive voyage into space.
