work_excerpt: 
An Astronaut’s Daughter Speaks: I was two when the fire lifted you / into the universe’s bed sheets, / into the secret belonging / through wormhole propulsion. // The rot beneath this supermoon sky / is spreading into the floorboards / of your former home // where your ex stands, / thoughts percolating / within her Castle Rock cortex. // I stand in the front yard, / wet grass spiking through my toes / beneath the constellations, / poisoned since you left // Denver’s light pollution / leaking into my 1-87 horizon. //
