Poems from space: odes to TO SLEEP IN A SEA OF STARS

if you’re wondering
where Eragon’s author went:
floating in the stars

yes, I mean, it’s true
everyone has a story
but Kira’s is best

aboard the Wallfish
you learn to love a stranger
become family

complex math, research
thorough realism of space
dude did some good work

so good it made me
cry, dream, hope, savor, tense up —
wouldn’t change a thing.

eight hundred pages
actually, more, with extras
yet you’ll still want more

delicious questions
lingering after the end
to hold it with you

for real, read the end
as in author’s notes and such
it’s always worth it

ps – this one is
for some badass jewelry
for the fractalverse
