Mining Solo by Lauren McBride

Mining Solo
Lauren McBride

on this barren asteroid
at night, the silence
wakes me

no soft rain
no rustling breeze
through leaves

no frog lullaby
nor chirping crickets
not even

an incessantly
barking dog
for company

This poem first appeared in Star*Line 41.4, Fall 2018.
