poetry by j matthew waters

coexisting in the exosphere

I’ve got this new wrist rocket
and have quickly learned
to positively contribute to the growing
amount of space debris
orbiting this colorful planet

the trick I’ve come to learn
is selectively picking
the right size & type of object
ones that can readily break through
the seven layers of the atmosphere

after an afternoon of wreaking
havoc with such worldly adventures
it may take weeks or months or even years
to refuel before locking & loading
the next privately held payloads

november two thousand twenty-one
