Conversation with Buzz Part 1

When we asked him what it was like, Buzz Aldrin told us the moon has a skin made of light, fibre optic fishing line woven to form a loose shroud that sags in some spots and looks clear when pulled tight.

The reports say it happened, but Buzz wouldn’t talk about sliding under the skin, lying with his head on the moon’s bare heart and that heavy light holding him down.

How the earth must have looked from there, that single sphere he had somehow detached from.
