492 Outer Space [12 July 2002]

only do we stand here
gazing up at the vast sky
dreaming of life that could be
maybe one or two
or ten billion other societies
existing among the stars
that chains their home world
to those balls of gas
questions do we ask
in part fearing the answers
hungry to know what life
actually does exist
would that we could flee
those questions that scare us
but is that ache to know
powerful enough to override it
