20-21 July 1969. Night

I want I want

Put a man on the moon

in this here decade

not because it is easy

but because it is hard.

I want to be best

because it is hard

and because that I can.

I want I want

Make the impossible done

to bring her back

land the eagle

and reach tranquility.

I want to be first

because it’s impossible

but because that I can.

I want I want

Give her the moon

her health and her happiness

which so far has missed her

because of my parenting.

I want to give her everything

because it missing

but because that I can.

I want I want

To write the beyond

the within we cannot reach

as distant as tranquility

after trauma of loss.

I want to be a writer

because it’s my dream

and because that I can.
