The Wanderer’s Chalice

The Wanderer’s Chalice

          by Darrell Lindsey

Stranded in a dimension

faintly similar to Earth,

he follows skulls of clouds

through ragged skies,

wanders endless miles

with fire on his back

& a sword in his psyche

for those alien marauders.

Prone to paw terra infirma

with his robotic fingers,

he searches for the magical chalice

that will pull the starship

back to its captain,

& then quite beyond.
