May 6, 1937

It swam beneath

the stratosphere of the Immortals;
an unpleasent indication that Man
was just one step away
from outstripping his mortal coil...
...which is why
none on board sensed the "snap"
of that single piece of horsehair
as the Sword of Damocles pierced the side,
and the hot breath of the Furies
mixed with the hydrogen
to immolate those who
dared to trespass...
