The night Mother Stepped into Space

Def: of height, depth, and width within which all things exist and move

Wild dreams
Rocket ships
with missing seatbelts
soaked sheets
and
astral projections
shed her
of her
constraints
middle aged
suitcase
carriage ride
blasts
away

mother dreams of this
his hands
picking strings
around her fairytale face

cheese wheel moon
takes her soon
sailing on star trail tail of
wistfulness
behind the sun
tin foil suit crackling away
from celestial maid
body
and she slides
glides
between Styrofoam
meteorites
in invisible arms
opens her mouth
and swallows
the milky way black soup of asteroids
mother laughs
her toes tickled trans Neptunian
night gown sizzling away

mother dreams of this
Star Trek sonar ping
Lullabies
The darkness of dark
twinkling
Shine
Saturn is a turntable
And the tune
Is all right
In flight
At her feet
Tiny earth shrinks
Away
Through the straw
Of her view
Her Ephemeris
Arching
Sublimely

A sad blastoff for us behind, a new frontier for them. Yes! – mh clay
