Dust and Echoes Dust and Echoes
Dust. As Dak stood at the top of pile of the sandy substance, he again cursed the material that seemed to dominate this ancient city. As he turned his helmeted head, his shoulder-mounted camera hummed and mirrored his movements, eager to snap images and video of the surrounding ruins. The civilization that had dominated this planet, while primitive by his kind's standards, were the oldest and most advanced known in the universe.
Scans from orbit had indicated that the air was breathable, but some areas had extremely high concentrations of radiation. Here, however, there appeared to
13 Things Ur Bank Won't Tell U13 Things your Bank Won't Tell You
New shape of fruit and vegetables,
Patience and pills
Instantly slims you down.
I am an IAMS cat
Don't be a sourpuss
Breakfast special: live bait
I could feel the Goosebumps on my skin.
Funny, so are we!
Mom, why is Tommy on the ceiling?
Feeds your family
Wrinkle, wrinkle little star
Does not compute.

Sgt. Sean Carston's eyes flicked around the dimly lit room, checking corners and cover for any sign of Covenant; it always paid to be cautious. Finding none, he signaled for PFC Alex Hays to follow. The private rolled through the door commando style and promptly landed on his back. Sean knew he should yell at him for messing around, but he couldn't help but smile. The kid had always liked to goof off. Besides, there was no Covenant in this building. Sean walked around and found another door. Outside was the balcony he had been looking for.

Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence

Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
