innerspace, innerspace, where have you gone?
this isn’t funny.
please come back.
I know we’ve had
our problems in the past
but I swear I’ll never screw around
with the basic nature of time and space
I’ll even write it on a blackboard:
“I will not get stinking drunk on a random Tuesday night and invent
a machine which destoys the essential fabric of the universe,
no matter how bad my day has been.”
Please come back.
(An old Jeff Mach piece from, oh, 2002, I think.)
