"and kisses are a better faith than freedom"


When I’m craving
a pizza out of this
world, I turn to
the seemingly cheese covered,
tomato speckled
Lo.
When I’m feeling
restless in my
small town,
I take my rocket ship
to the cold, foreign lands of
Europa.
When I’m yearning
for some excitement,
I skate as fast as a
comet, along the
ice-covered curves of
Ganymede.
When I’m warily
waiting for sleep to come,
my dreams float through
the stars to the
sleeping surfaces of
Callisto.


The author's comments:
Although no everyone may understand this, I wrote this poem based on the descriptions of Jupiter's first four moons. Along with some space puns, and word play It is a short poem written about Lo, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

I loved this! I completely understood it being a little bit of an astronomy nerd. Wow! I just really loved this one!

i read authors comment first and then the poem. lol, as soon i see "craving pizza" i started lauging. i love the visuals in the poem as well as the consept of dreaming about leaving "this world" to a literal meaning. only critique i could say is, in the end of the poem, you could have added a conclusion of some sorts. it feels unfinished to me. bring everything together in the end and find a reason for the words that came before. ( can you also look at my poems. that would be awsome. feedback on "fear part two" is what im longing for at the moment)
