mission control

together afterwards in each other’s arms, they slip into sleep

he dreams of spacecraft instrument control panels
trouble in the asteroid belt
possible cataclysm on a botched re-entry

she wakes first, kisses him awake
did you dream? she says

he says
i dreamed we flew away together to the stars
