Odyssey

sailing 

Sailing
dark-lit seas
measuring infinity’s length
traversing star held territory;
explorer

velvet 

Claustrophobia;
wrapped up in velvet darkness
bright stars blinking past

universe 

sharp solar light flares
slants between blue, wooded worlds;
distant universe

stars 

the wideness of stars
agoraphobia chokes
no central anchor

transient 

no
refuge;
transient
world – keep moving
man
