More poems for Express It In Eight.
Sheryl Sandberg offered me a seat
on a rocket to who knows where.
I did ask but she said it's a secret
kept to preserve the adventure
of a journey beyond the stars.
A moment's thought was enough
to decide to turn down the gift.
Sheryl's lebensraum is not my problem.
