blood moon


the world has changed time curves
red light bends round the planet
salt channels across the surface of mars
total phase goes black blood red then rust
we have such fears about rejection
freeze drying gamma irradiation
chemical sterilization
the body recognises its own
waves bounce back from the heart unheard
debris floats through interstellar space
muscles & valves & shooting stars
bacteria microbes fungal spores
tensed fingers stab at portable screens
a red thread trails from the ear
