Creativity Challenge: Outer Space Pen Coffin

A guest submission for the Creativity Challenge! Numbers 1-5-6: a waiter/waitress, outer space, and a pen.

“Outer Space Pen Coffin”

We have a pact:

By day we wait tables

By afternoon we’re

Planning our funerals.

Remember, she said

That NASA space pen I got

Last summer on vacation –

It writes upside-down.

Tape it to the lid of my coffin.

You got it, I reply.
