Countdowning

It’s Tuesday,

And I didn’t know

This was happening

I follow the news

Though clearly

Not the timetables

x

I thought we’d

Have more time

To get used to the

Variance in the crew:

The one with white hair,

The one with shiny

Brown

x

Maybe when this

Is ordinary, things will

Be better

Arch-safety

Will be ordinary,

Less frantic for those

Of us

On the ground

x

They holding,

Time for nervousness

x

Please launch already

Then come back
