Tribute to the late Science Fiction author Iain M Banks


In funerary service of basic rite
far from planetaries lush delight
in darkness cast from life's last sight
into my aim my hole my night

star approach
on my path
the black void
closing fast
photon spray
heat my skin
body burn
soul compressed
by vast mass
all deeds done
nothing now
matter wane
fusion reign
