Highest Bidder

by Alex Steelsmith

“Unidentified bidder pays $28 million in auction to join Bezos for July space flight… Bezos and his
crewmates will experience about three minutes of weightlessness near the top of the trajectory.”


Hiddenly biddenly
Someone Anonymous,
craving a chance to be
physically hurled

into a moment of
bliss, paid a sum that is
out of this world.
