driftwood satellite

he was a satellite
knocked off course
by computational errors
sending him spiralling
deeper into the dark
as he desperately tries
to reestablish a connection
he had never severed
only receiving pieces
of garbled signals
as he found himself
transitioning from
a world he had been
so happily a part of
to unceremoniously now
being clearly apart from
as it drifted from sight
his power levels fading
in the embrace of
the cold eternity of
the void of space alone
a string of ones and zeros
cascading through
a haze of solar radiation
a pockmarked driftwood
satellite on a collision
course with nothingness
