Devora de Bris

Devora de Bris,
she breaks her fast
with dwindling hydrogen thrust,
toasted titanium
and a cracked cranium,

and sails her way
 free-
            falling 
                      zig-
         zagging 
to the nearest space station.

She’d hoped she’ll see
The Bus Station,

but sorry, not here, they say,
as they direct her way
to the farthest dark 
                                  deep  
                                        cemetery.
