Hello, Houston

 

 

His taste is not alone

for earth and stone

 

He yearns to glide

like an eagle

skim the waters

like a dolphin

 

He wants space

both outer and inner

 

He dreams dreams

in unimaginable colors

from a point

light years away

 

He cries

alone in blackened ship

all power gone

for the woman left behind

 

He thinks of her

one last time

before "for emergency" given

knife in hand

lifeline severs
