By Hillary Lyon

oh he's spacesick again
these boots are too heavy
and this world twirls too fast
for comfort he's sleepy now

but he has to move on
because his arms want to flail
rather than move in smooth waves
in ultra slow motion

oh he's ill but happy look
through the other end of the viewer
a billion pixels highlight
all the incomprehensible beauty here

it makes him shiver into dance
it's almost too much to taste to transmit
these wonders he's found so far
from home
