The Search For Another

THE SEARCH FOR ANOTHER

I have ventured beyond your eyes
As you, fearlessly, beyond mine … So …

Let us travel then … Out to the edge and beyond
Odzooks! … Odzounds! … Odd sounds gone a-swirl

Till surrounding all that remains remains but a loan alone
And now reminder me … What were we doing a moment ago?

… doing? … saying?… thinking? … dreaming? … and so on …
Gone, gone, gone … Adrift among the ravenous next

“There was an extremely pathetic side to the surrender of these mighty fliers, the result of an age-old custom which demanded that surrender should be signalised by the voluntary plunging to earth of the commander of the vanquished vessel.”

– Edgar Rice Burroughs (In “A Princess Of Mars”.)
