Artificial Sweetener

I laughed at the crushing absurdity of it all
As I unwrapped a stick of Raspberry Cheesecake
Protein bars, wondering if it was the artificiality
Of food or self that my body rejected more.
I have left you messages in my mind
To reassure myself that friendship isn’t bound
By the limits of conversation and time
Then I woke up in a panic since that is all
Friendship is bound by. In thousands of years when
We are explorers on spaceships, who will remind us
Of our humanity? Who will explain love and
Loyalty in the realm of time and timelessness?
In the meantime I will sit here, alone
Counting stars and imagining this dialogue.
