Night’s Sky

I can’t stare at the night’s sky for too long. Eventually, the beauty fades, and I start to think about all the giant rocks zipping by in the darkness–all around us. And the darkness in the sky syncs with my mind, and I see an asteroid–the size of the moon–coming at me like a cue ball. A blink, and our precious microbe-covered rock is just another molten ball, screaming through space.
