When You Go So Far in One Direction That You Can’t Imagine Going Back Cliché

She sings of volcanoes and sobriety,
Late arrivals and miles traveled.

Birds would eat breadcrumbs,
So where are you?

Potatoes and tomatoes and rain.
She sings explanations and survival.

Sometimes you feel like a satellite, sometimes you don’t.

What makes you think an escape pod is going to be any better?

This is yesterday's piece... I'm cheating.
