I need space

I need space she said, and that is what he tried to give her.

I saw this picture on a shirt once, and this is what came to mind. I don’t think it’s a poem, but I don’t think it’s a short story either.

So, here you are.

I need space

I need space I say

How much you ask:

Miles?

Past state lines?

Across oceans?

Worlds away?

I shake my head.

You could give me 9 planets

and a universe

And it’s still not far enough.
