Space Suits Don't Come With Ties.

Rocket - 80 Words
Aaron Dethrage


When we are young, we exist formlessly, told to become


anything we desire, encouraged even to become astronauts--bleached
pockets of air stark against a starry, midnight
sky. However, the world slowly intervenes, gnawing


away our ambitions and childhood fantasizing,
grounding us to one place,
one job, one desk.


Our feet--like



We are reckless and wonderful creatures, something we must try never to forget.
