Nathan Ventura - One Poem

Sorry Astronaut

The circus clown
no longer aspires to fly
as he listens to the hissing fuse
through cast iron
cannon walls

The sorry astronaut
shot into space
watches his home shrink
and dissolve
into the stars

Adrift in nothing
with nothing to hold
feeling nothing
but the gentle tug
of the black hole

Nathan Ventura lives in Boston Massachusetts saving every penny he manages to make as a dish washer. He has taken a liking to walking and has done so from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail as well as from Georgia to Maine on the Appalachian Trail.
