MarPoWriMo 19

Across the hall from 
the exhibit about
measuring the universe

people stand agape
at the video screen above
replaying the space

shuttle’s last flight
a quick mental calculation
determines how many

of them could even
remember the event
happening in real time

I read the display about
the Challenger disaster
which asks how I felt

if I saw it at the time
while the same video
starts playing again
