The Starlight SciFaiku Review, Summer 2022 (issue #2)

13 | Walk the Planck by PS Cottier

educated pirates
test astronauts’ physics
walk the Planck

lonely visitor
ship wedged in Scots mud
luckless monster

infinite boredom
pills inside food sacks
space piñatas

worms eating ships
aluminium wriggles
voyagers dessert

no gravity
bones become feathers
never return
