We Need

We need a Spanish conquistador

No reason

I just like saying it

Like guacamole or serendipity


We need a pagan ritual

I’m not pagan

But dancing in the nude

via a full moon

could be interesting


We need a time-stopping machine

Not to stop time

Just to make savory moments last longer

Like good ice cream or passionate kisses


We need world peace

the permanent kind

Everyone, everyday

from here through eternity


I’ll give up the rest if we can have that.

If not, well I’ll be in the moonlight

savoring my ice cream

Looking for my conquistidor
