Always there was a distance between them.
Could be living on different coasts, but it wasn’t.
Really it happened even when they were in the same room.
Oh, if they could just figure out a way to cross the gap
Such that all their dreams could come true.
So it was a tragedy when they settled for the next best thing.
The lightning and thunder are at his command
His hand holding a spinning Mjolnir
Outside he looks like he is as calm as the eye of a hurricane
Reality was the true storm was raging inside
What would I do if I found a genie in a bottle?
I would ask for three simple things.
Something that would make you smile, something to make you think, and something to give you peace.
Hope by you reading this some of it came true.
“Focus on the cornucopia of sweetness in front of you”
“Really dude? It’s like oranges, bananas, and like coconuts.”
“Unless you learn to see the totality of sweet vitamins and minerals you will be lost in carbs”
“Isn’t that stuff loaded with carbs? Like, that’s why it’s sweet, dude.”
“That may be true. Can I interest you in a zucchini?”

Food may be temporally empheneral, but the memories of that meal will be eternal
May your true self always be hidden from prying eyes
As you go about your daily life
Simplifies things like emotional attachments
Keeping everyone distant and you, safe.
How high do we need to jump
Until we finally get over the hump
Realizing true equality for ALL
Determined not to go backwards ever again
Leaving behind the strife, bigotry, and hatred
Embracing a truly brilliant future
Down deep you know it’s true
It doesn’t stop you from going deeper, though
Giving up hope that the treasure is just a bit lower isn’t an option
Don’t believe I chose this life
Even though I’ve lived it for over fifty years
Couldn’t really find a single point where
I didn’t coast along life’s eddy currents
So you see, I am a true floater
It might infuriate some of you
Or it might make me your hero
Now that, dear reader, seems to be your…
