Houston, We... This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My head is so far in the sky
clouds circle around my neck

My eyelashes bat the stars,
sending them whizzing away

Space shuttles ghost by my ears
and make no sound

Down below appears brighter
from such a faraway view

The sky is the only place untouched
by the clammy fingers of dull, smothering fog

They tell me not to go around with my
head in the clouds,
so I don't

Instead I live where the planets drift
idly along,
dancing in a circle
