Fight or Flight (Octodil)

Poem-a-Day Challenge #17: Reason Poem

Catalog all
The reasons why
You shouldn’t stay, but still––
Stubborn as always––you
Won’t run away. I don’t know why.
But each time you do stay
I love a little more.



What is an Octodil?

Meteor (Octodil)

Captured by NASA’s Terra Satellite (Source)

Flying ice ore
Hurtling through space
Slams into atmosphere
And explodes for miles long
And the swirling swift clouds beneath
Flow along the currents of air
Undeterred by the fire
That streaked by overhead.
