Spacer's Song

by TN Dockrey


Cold, glittering, and far
a lonely kid’s light of hope or
a dream that will upon waking be kept
secret
like a sin in one’s heart
one star, two stars, and more
this starry-eyed kid covets the Galaxy


© 2010 TN Dockrey

TN Dockrey currently attends law school (but please don't hold that against me--we carbon-based life forms do have to eat) and when not wasting time reading Supreme Court opinions, is very busy writing science fiction, contemplating metaphysics, and reconciling paradoxes with or without creating holes in the Universe.
