No speed limit
Up in the air
Things are lighter
Impacting heavier
On the surface

No signposts
No more
Drag or
Air friction

Arcs curve downwards
Meteor showers
Retaining mass
And density
As they collide

Salty in the mouth
Falling from the sky
No more bitter
No more astringence
No longer sour

But the dense lead
Above can fall
However light it is
Up in the sky
It is lethal down below

They can stampede
Massive rivets
Raining down
To crater and pound
By solid world drown
