cryo-pods faltered

cryo-pods faltered
life-support at zero
light-years ago

twin planets–
drifting clouds
methane flakes falling

breeding peals sporadic
she wonders which head
she hasn’t heard yet

the planet’s scorching solar winds
all surface mining stopped

her four eyes
glances unresisted
eros shook me
