Destination Mars

Standing in the neat field here
out behind the garden tool shed where
I watch Mars rising red without fear
from gray shadows of earth a sleep in bed
Mars floats above my wondering head.
I loved green Fields yes, but I'm killed dead.

Imagine standing on an iron out cropping
above a sandy shore without a salty sea
