Black Arrow

If words could fuel all the launchers
that our engineers could dream,
then weightless puns and ramjet
metaphors would streak above
our heads, and leave a trail of wishes
in the stars. For space inspires.
Though it may leave you breathless
and nothing there can live, the will to
chase the departing universe is strong.
Inject your language in the plenum chamber –
ignite a journey to the centre of the heart.
