Love in space

so we collide
cosmic rays flash
though our closed eyes
"Project Flashes/ALTEA (Anomalous Long Term Effects in Astronauts) is aimed at the understanding of the causes for the anomalous light flash perceptions (phosphenes) reported by astronauts in orbit, and, more in general, at monitoring the visual system status in microgravity conditions and during cosmic ray passages through visual cortices/retina."
