the enemy within

solar winds introduce new
life into the galaxy
hurtling subatomic creatures on
out-of-control rocks
racing to find a place to crash

lucky enough to penetrate
outer atmospheres
they breakup and collaborate
as golfball-sized hail
strategically hitting safe houses

once accepted within they evolve
one thousand years
learning the culture and waiting
patiently to take over
a planet destined to be theirs

it was a deafening ride
to the top of the clouds
and the further we climbed
the quieter the night became

one by one we jumped
through the crescent moon
the relative wind pushing us
toward our desired target

once reaching terminal velocity
we expanded our wings
and eased into the uncertainty
of a hostile territory
