Brian Rosenberger- A Poem

Out of the sky

From the heavens,
bringing hell
not so much fell
as targeted its prey
herald of nightmare
spawned some light years away.

Silent night
wrecked by the sound
of a shooting star downed
prelude to screams to come
as the saying goes
any landing you can undulate away from . . .

so much for one small step
so much for one giant leap
so much for humanity.
