Mars


I’ve got a one way ticket to Mars
I hear they’ve got some really nice cars
And all those shooting stars
I’ve got a one way ticket to Mars
I’ve got a one way ticket to the other side
I told my baby and she cried and cried
But it’s just foolish pride
I’ve got a one way ticket to the other side
I’ve got a one way ticket to the promised land
Eternal love in the palm of my hand
Ain’t life grand
With a one way ticket to the promised land?
I’ve got a one way ticket to Mars
I hear they’ve got some really nice guitars
And all those shooting stars
I’ve got a one way ticket to Mars

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine, among others. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
