Finally, some writing! This one is a bit rough, but I like it a lot so far. It’s a strange one for me to start writing on this blog with–the structure of the poem is pretty strange for me, and I tend to not be directly personal in my poetry, though I suppose I’m trying to open up a bit here, anyway! Structurally it’s based on a book (my favorite, actually!), which I’ll put in the comments in case you’d prefer to guess or not know.
“It is good to renew one’s wonder,” said the philosopher. “Space travel has again made children of us all.”
ROCKET SUMMER is my entire childhood. Keep on readin’ on?
