He floats


Sealed in twice over

Reality will kill him

And the suit he wears

Keeps him alive

But the stars call

And he wants to bask

In their light

Without a barrier


In space

In time

Sometimes he wants

Someone to tell him

He’s good at what he does

But he fears it might

Expose him

An aside, a withdrawal

Like a stray meteorite

Punching through with

Silent velocity

Space is lonely

For the astronaut

But he remains as long

As there’s air to breathe
