WALKING IN SPACE
360 degrees of nothing – not even
falling wind-speed; still-life in action.
Faced with awe, does the heart stop?
A world at your feet while you hang
as if you’re lounging in an armchair
watching The Planet Today, with beer
half-way to your mouth, gobsmacked,
unable to fight the fact of being there.
Is it everything? It must be too much...
as if you could lose yourself forever.
And the nothing holds your body lightly
bridging the gap between you and ship
on the day-to-day tasks, the commute
where you pause to contemplate time.
