I’m in touch with reality

Very very lightly

An astronaut outside the ship

I have to grip tightly


Panoramic perspective, awe

Some astronomic trip

‘Come in Space Cadet’

Mind you don’t slip


My tendonous tether

Could sever forever easily

I’d lose myself in headspace

Over all the world’s gravity


From the womb of the universe

I see the earth receding

All there is is


and the sound of me breathing
