Starship Human

When a hole so vast
All recollection of gravity be long lost
When atmosphere’s touch 
When sudden flares of solar light
Startles so to trigger a hurricane

What red-stained firmament
Marks tears visible light years away
What evidence is there
What proof of life
Or hope for hereafter 

Insipid Storm

How the heat
Awakens us 
Unfairly ’round midnight
Demanding

Be more 
Want more
Until we can take it no more
Covers off
Masks off

Enshroudments be gone
Our skin will breathe 
At 3am
We’ll rise by choice
