virgin territory

seal it up,
send it off,
forget everything you've ever
modern memories,
mistaken feelings,
and treasure.
submarine them to safety
in the dark reaches of mind's
where colonies of space pirates will one day find
a romantic silhouette
in the powdery real estate.
turn off the neon in your sign,
drizzle glue inside your heart.
maybe things will stick again.
(sigh) ...again.

alone behind your eyes she'll be,
the wonder of her
safely behind your back she'll stand,
untouched by your tragic hands.
