Spacey

When I was a kid
space was cool
the 60’s found us
amidst a
‘space race’
which we won,
landing on the moon
the summer I was ten

A few short years later
we were spaced out
taking trips of
cosmic variety
without ever leaving
our paneled, basement
rec rooms

adulthood and its
attendant
responsibilities
had us all
needing some space
so we looked,
fitfully
trying to find some

now middle age
has come, gone –
I think
you were
saying something –
right?

sorry
I guess I just
spaced it out
