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
