Missing by Mike Johnson
Missing: our
one and only planet,
known to her friends as

Yes, an old photograph
when she was clothed in
gorgeous greens,
wilderness white,
brilliant blues.

Somehow, got into
bad company:
blistered brown,
gaunt grey,
faded. Jaded,

left one morning;
no forwarding address.

We just didn't think. . .
We just didn't know
what to do.

If you
have any information
that can help us trace
our beautiful planet,
please get in touch.

Please get in touch.
