WALL SWEATSWORDS & 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.
