Joseph hung
The endless suspension
He had no weight
The arc of the world
His ship
Fast as light and faster
He called her Alice
"Down the Rabbit's hole"
Off to Wonderland they went
Alice and Joseph
They asked him
Where is it?
For he had been everywhere
Where is it?
For he had seen everything
Where is it?
For had known all that was worth knowing
Light years
Where is most beautiful?
Where is most wondrous?
Endless reaches of space and time
Where is life worth living?
He laughed at them
Blind fools
He tried to teach them
Willfully ignorant
They did not understand
They did not want to
He told them
The most beautiful
Atmosphere breached
The most wondrous
Landing gear out
The place where life is worth living
Welcome back, Joseph
