the late Arthur C Clarke

through his words, space became an odyssey,
through his deeds, satellites began to communicate

remembering the late great arthur c. clarke
who died in the land of serendip, a comma of an island
in an ocean of turmoil

will monoliths still puzzle us now?
will computers still terrify our journeys?
will apes learn new techniques of warfare?

the answers will have to wait
because the questioner has finally

been silenced.
