Lava Rock​/​Space Rock

from by Lonely Deer



I'm getting the sense that this feeling
was birthed from the primordial ooze
before T-rex was alive
and Cartier too
before amoeba gave us the ol' kick
to dance the conversation
to rosy cheeks and vivid imagination
to reaching over and gladly changing the station
to when singing our lungs out in your car is reality's only vacation
to wilfully placing ourselves in a bad situation

there's a cold molecular chemistry
between you and me

and writhing around the lava rock

I'm really glad that the space rock hasn't killed us yet
that this asteroid hasn't asteroid-ed us yet
I'm ill-equipped to deal with a post-apocalyptic nightmare
modern western convenience has made me such a sap

I'm really glad that the space rock hasn't killed us yet
