I’m currently taking a “Poetry of the Earth” course in my MLS, which is basically a hybrid of science fiction/non-fiction and poetry. We’ve been encouraged to write science inspired poetry as part of the course, so I’ve been [trying] to find inspiration from the little science I know. Ha!
Here’s the poem I wrote for my class last night:
In these cells,
rupture structure at the birth of starlight
In these bones,
weaken at the sunset of another day
In these lungs,
drowning the voice in middle of night
In these veins,
tourniquet the heart with the moon’s rise
In these guts,
weeping waste with the silence of stars
In these hands,
hemorrhaging will from minds of infinite.
Thank you for reading,
