Love, Motion-Sickness, and Other Comatose States

by Bryon D. Howell


I can't imagine
loving you
is much
unlike
our country's first
trip
to the moon.

A lot of bouncing
around,
holes everywhere,
rumors of
water,
the constant fear of
aliens,
and every time
I turn around
there seems to
be

a problem.

I can't even get a
beer to pair
with thoughts of
you
without having
to endure
the appalling
aftertaste

of Tang.
