• Late one afternoon - it was almost night
    a space cowboy stepped within a crater
    She who he'd loved/likewise someone else
    but was able to wish hate on him or her.

    Because they were so "essential" to the world
    and oh so (sigh) perfectly like a sign.
    Since ignoring his feelings became too easy
    as mate he would step down and resign.

    He wound a music box to hide the tears
    and wrapped his heart in silk and steel bars.
    Since you don't get a nickname like "Roadkill"
    - by being missed or spared by bus or cars
