A Prayer to God and NASA

2015. The Poetry Club, Glasgow UK.


Dressed in my finest space gear, I read a prayer begging NASA and God to never send me into space. This piece was inspired by Sister Corita Kent, my Church of Wales upbringing and the fear I felt after watching the movie Gravity.


"GOD OF POWER, PLEASE HAVE MERCY AND NEVER SEND ME TO SPACE.

LORD HEAR MY PRAYER. AMEN"
