Nothing Should Own Us – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“At night, when the sky is full of stars and the sea is still you get the wonderful sensation that you are floating in space.” Natalie Wood

Nothing Should Own Us

To feel complete detachment,
as if floating through space,
completely devoid of physical connection,
wafting along without so much as a 
minor concern about a single thing,
there's moon-cheese for the journey,
andromeda wine slaking my thirst,
stardust aplenty for when I need it,
nothing to decode, nothing to worry,
no pattern, no system, no expectations,
no shouting, no hustle necessary,
we are truly unspent and taking our
time to wander this starlit fantasia
called life.
