POEM: listening to Leon Thomas

leon thomas 07

listening to Leon Thomas

who yodels like Switzerland
is a planet orbiting a distant star
Leon its first astronaut

“every since the beginning of time
man has yearned to travel
to a distant land far away”

Leon is into some next-level shit
channeling the solar wind through
what must be a massive set of lungs

were we able to decode the waveform
of Leon’s voice, would it be a message
explaining to all of us how to travel
as one human race to the stars?
