WALL SWEATS

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter

     I.  my skin is sticky.
         even the wall sweats.
         yet I'm happy to be here,
         the happiest yet.
         once I was on Venus.
         it was so hard to breathe.
         so close was the sun
         that my blood seethed.

    II.  then there was Jupiter:
         I weighed so much,
         I couldn't stand up
         or raise my hand to sup.
         the far side of the moon
         was a frozen night,
         colder than the hearts
         of the extreme right.

ENDING:  once I was without you,
         the loneliest place by far.
         'tis a cruel planet
         when I can't be where you are.
