Greenhouse World



so young and so hopeful
we keep on flying close
the deafening scream of
nature as we touch the sun
the ghost in the machine
whispers this war is won
our bones break like eggshells
there's nowhere for us left to run

Trembling, I dug my way out and clambered to the top of the mound; not a Martian in sight! the day seemed dazzling bright after my imprisonment, and the sky was no longer red but a glowing blue; Red Weed covered every scrap of ground, but a gentle breeze kept it swaying...and oh! the sweetness of the air!..."
