The day that I collided with your satellite is one that I will not forget. My trajectory was forever changed. I will never reach whatever star I was hurtling towards before our intersection altered my course. It is interesting how entropy works, like gravity, to steer such wobbly ships as mine.

I never figured out which star, if any, held you in its orbit. There might be forces in the stars that are beyond the capability of my instruments to measure. If I ever figure it out, and if you are still in range, I will be sure to transmit that data to you.

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in various publications, including Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
