Every Planet We Reach is Dead

by Peter Wild

We travelled insane distances in the dark. I mean you couldn't see a fucking thing for miles. Allison said "we're not lost, we have Sat-Nav" or some fucking shit. Christ, it made me so angry. I was so angry and so desperate. When I think back about those times, out there, our craft like a twinkling silver tack in the silky black bulletin board of space, all I feel is remorse.
