jettison

he jettisoned
the artificial atmosphere
out
into the vacuum of space
in a sudden flash
of insanity

he had grown tired
of the endless
nothing
hidden behind
thick shielding that protected
from solar radiation

gave in
to the soft call
of oblivion
whispering
in the loneliness
of the capsule

halted gasps
as his eyes pooled
with blood
that formed spheres
of vermillion
in the spots
