Sleep
is on the schedule,
but the moon dust
is bright as a city
outside the window,
and your childhood stars
have been erased.

So you wait out
the rest period
in the one good spot
on the floor
with your eyes open

and let peace tuck in
under blankets
240,000 miles away.

 

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 anniversary.  Pictured here the Saturn V rocket that launched Apollo 11 to the Moon, and cut-out image of Aldrin on the Moon.  (Images credit: NASA)
