Longshot (after Hawking and Milner)- Justin Million – April 13

Synapse Writer-In-Residence #NPM16

Longshot

By force of light,
the sail

will lap old Voyager,
maybe our expectations

too, find tiny pink or wild, tentacled arms
waving our 100,000,000 mph light down

to communicate their
versions:

the irony being we’re on our way there to know the future
we think

they embody
just by being

so far
away,

and maybe they’ll be terrified
(when they see our sails, no wind)

of the future-
