WHERE’S DAVID BOWIE WHEN WE NEED HIM?

*scroll down for a YouTube video*
Why write a poem

About a Starman

When Bowie already did it

Like a SciFi author

Predicting the future

But gotta tell you

I believe there is

A sexy energy

In that suit

Orbiting

In his red Tesla

And oh

Aside from the

Incredible

Momentous

Meaning of the SpaceX

Launch

The Falcon Heavy Take-off

The girl in me

Just wants to be

Sitting by his side

As we ride

Across the vast place

Called space

Heading for the dance

Pulsing from the sun

At long last, romance…

PROGRESS 59 SUPPLY CRAFT TANKA

progress-spacecraft-above-earth-e1430994282703

Disintegration

Over the oceans is still

The likely outcome

As the Progress fifty-nine

Hurtles to Earth parts unknown

Six thousand pounds of

Food could feed our hungriest

Nations and the fuel

Could warm shivering bodies

Run if you see fiery streaks!
