Space Monkey

Space Monkey

shut your mouth

you are the
       space monkey

you will fly
       where we tell you to
   and
       be our litmus test
so that we may know
what we can do
without having to check the waters
        on our own

we owe you nothing

do this for us

    the greater good
is the good
    you may never know

--Maxwell Baumbach makes a mean bowl of Ramen. He also edits the Heavy Hands Ink publication and has a youtube channel (Youtube.com/MaxwellThePoet). His first chapbook, "Suburban Rhythm," was published by cc&d through Scars Publications in September. It is available both as a free read and as an ISBN # book. His work has appeared a bunch of places, so google it. He calls Elmhurst, IL his home.
