Without

 

Some poet (not me)

who signed up for a space walk

as a vacation

from Social Media,

switched off

the intercom —

felt she was floating,

and/or spinning slowly, later wrote

about the first 60 minutes

of this distancing

from Earth

123456— Quiet? No, I

could still hear my breathing

and it was loud, like shouting, and it

was all

I was.

 

And

very distracting.
