Napowrimo 2020 Day 7

Prompt: Write a poem based on a news article.

in other news
on his planet far from mine
the rain is made of molten iron and male energy
sweat not tears, make no mistake
they vaporize by morning
forged by the god of war
he practices emotional distancing
like a sport
sharpening his strength and confidence
meanwhile on the shores of
a fading celestial body
I stand small and unsure
a storm of salty rain drowns the stars
blood fills the seas
rises to the skies
staining the moon pink
