Space Shuttle

by Nick Andrea

I must be on a space shuttle,
for,
in those trees, those hills, this sky
I see the cosmos;

And, I must be on a space shuttle,
for,
in this oxygen coming through my nostrils
I feel the stellar sigh of a thousand dying red giants;

and, I must be on a space shuttle,
for,
upon this dirt that I stand I see
nebulae – majestic, colorful, swirling,
creating;

and, I must be on a space shuttle,
for,
in this sunlight cascading down from the sky in a river of gold
I see photons that have bounced around in that star right there since
before my ancestors started
walking
upright.

yea, traveling at the speed of thought through a wormhole, I must be on a space shuttle,
for,
in these signs, omens, these dreams I feel the
space-time continuum bending, like a rug
bunched up by a door a little too close
to the ground.

I, Cosmonaut Nikolai,
what am I but a
piece of fuzz arising from that doormat
with an eye to see?
