It all starts with co-ordinates
calculations for the jump.
Revolutions of the die banished by automated signals
left to ossify in the yawning maw of the stellar regions.
Electronic game of tag between computers
and engines renders a path through dark matter trenches.
Powder blue thrust steams from the exhaust,
the stars unfurl, azure strings of celestial infinity.
One side of the universe to the other
mere seconds of separation.
clouded in a haze of light speed motion.
of scarred titanium and maimed panels
from asteroid to asteroid
elusion of empyrean hulks
into the infinite atramentous yonder
vents afterburners azure
the very fabric of the cosmos
Time recedes to a nether point
the stars dilate
the craft strakes
through the ocean of emptiness
