In tutto il mondo

We were eleven hours from space

when grace fell from her chair,

all but one bird laughed and stared.

And the audience members bowed as she recited her last verse-

"To curse those who've rehearsed death

isn't more troubling as dancing the lines of those who lived."

We were eleven hours too early,

but we were also eleven hours too late,

when grace fell from her chair

into the oblivion of outer space.
