Abyss & Apex : Third Quarter 2005

Tour of Duty

by Deborah P Kolodji

 

base star
so few planets
for shore leave
sleep berth malfunction
the extra years earned
in stasis
fried circuits
of a food synthesizer
scrambled eggs
zero G breakfast
junior’s syrup
in my hair
re-entry
fielding the heat
of coming home
