Rob Schackne #1 – The Sound of Wind on Mars

The Sound of Wind on Mars

Vaster quarantine
the expanse of space
off canvas out of view
can’t be understood
then the earshot comes
to restless earthlings
a twelve-minute delay
the sound of wind on Mars
no machinery of war
no armies clanking armor
no shouts of murder
only the presence
of extinction
and hard-won peace
under threat again
