Child bundled
in a snowsuit
enters alien world.

Sarcophagus lid
at Palenque
depicts King Pacal
at spaceship controls.

Some seek to know
the endless dark void,
to float above
our safe blue rug.

I insulate myself,
hide in bed.
My universe is wallpaper,
dimensionless, flat.
I launch rockets,
explore the space
inside my head.
