An Astronaut’s Notes

by Barry Charman

In space
Alarm
Sounds like a gulping fish

A nearby comet
Sounds like a crescendo of breath

A dropped tool
Sounds like an exotic swear word

A moment’s loneliness
Sounds like a tear that floats into your ear

A long walk
Sounds like a private confession

A dream
Sounds like a summer breeze

A call home
Sounds like a world away
