Jules Verne
I never managed to reach escape velocity.
I was permanently in orbit, right to the end.
I circled the drain of the reality seemingly ad infinitum.
I joined the space junk clutter.

I eventually managed to grapple my pen.
I composed upon the card a cute collection of couplets.
I composed continually while curving constantly.
I curled conceptually and contracted.

I receded before, to earliest, and even then before that.
I became before
I was what was and what will be
I was were, could and should.

I forgot beyond timing
I attuned into astral form
I attenuated the multi-verse versions
We vibrated, synchronised, transcended.

Harry Houdini, Hungarian-born American escapologist and illusionist, was born today in 1874.

Jules Verne, French novelist, poet and playwright, died today in 1905.
