Back Next The Journey

I entered the space ship
headed for a life of travel
to be strapped into the same place
as my mate who was selected to ie
besides me.
From the data of the great machine
she was matched to me
and I was matched to her
Into the dark space we will go
hoping that somewhere
in this outer eternity
is a place we can land
and set foot.

Irwin R. Shaw - January 20th 1988
