Friends in the Distance

Friends in the distance

So far out of reach

Spinning in a far orbit

Hearing only garbled speech


Beyond the pull of gravity

No chance of Earthly contact

Coordinates do not compute

But objects continue to attract


In the mind’s telescopic eye

We crossed the orbital plane

Shooting away on a comet tail

Gone but buried in my brain
