Today’s prompt involves selection of a spaceship name from a selection of Ian M. Banks titles, then writing a poem from the title. While I’m not familiar with his work, I think I’m going to have to look him up. His titles really sound like a lot of fun!
For my poem, I opted to make up an Banks-like spaceship title for my poem. I hope I did him justice.
Casual Disregard of Depressingly Oppressive Physics
It falls straight up, but never down
There aren’t even wings
Lands on air, when it comes to town
By pilots wearing rings
Arriving ‘fore it ever leaves
Time don’t seem to matter.
And when it rains, the weather believes
Droplets have to scatter.
So hop right in, and spiral fly,
And land right on the sun.
Don’t worry, you could never die,
When having this much fun!
