DISCONNECTED

 

Feeling unsaturnable

Being ringless

Once again

But what did it matter

To once wear that ring

The first time

You were supposed to be mine

But you spread yourself across space and time

Then the second ring

A false ring

Where was the wedding

Sham

False as your face

I never could see past the mask

Now, no more

Nothing to distinguish me

From other ringless planets

No oohs and aahs from telescopers

Scouring the skies

Unaware of the lies

Not knowing why

Saturn is no longer visible…
