subspace erotica
ARedLetter

your heartbeats are radio waves in the galaxy
 1
and every star, every planet, every lost and
 2
stunningly true civilization hears it beneath them.
 3
 
 
no amount of chest beating and self pitying will
 4
change that -- your hands weave poetry into the
 5
skins of the dying, deft fingers constantly working.
 6
 
 
but they mar your skin in fleeting dreams and
 7
bygone memories, you are the vastness of space
 8
with all of the death and none of the reward.

Nice work... Too bad it's been polluted with SPAM already.  Same thing happens with my stuff.  Wish we could protect our site better, but I know that Donald does the BEST that he can with what he has to work with...
