POETRY
Manifestations of the Force: Solo
by Andrew Pidoux

Andrew Pidoux returns with another sonnet from a galaxy far, far away - this time based on Han Solo. 

if his so-called “hunk-of-junk” spaceship
weren’t retrofitted with warp drive to thwart
hulking Star Destroyers and give the slip
to Bounty Hunters, he and his hairy
co-pilot, Chewbacca, his only pal,   
would have stood no chance against such scary    
monsters as sarlaccs, exogorths, et al.
