Spock's Smile


sometimes I am jealous

of Mr. Spock on Omicron Ceti III

stoic, determined, focused

humanity in control

possessed of all faculty

but one

until a thing outside himself

made him more than himself

and he could smile a smile

rivalling supernovae

in its brilliance


on days like this I wonder

where is my outside myself

to make me more than myself

for I want to smile

so desperately

I want to smile
