Space Master X-7

I

A space probe returns to earth covered
with a mysterious fungus that transforms
into an ever-growing pile of space rust.
that when accidentally tinged with human blood-
became Bloodrust, and threatened cover the entire world

And so, the idea of uncontrollably toxic
substances was a given for us. How Factory Creek
flowed right orange from the spillage
from the General Wire and Cable plant,
how the beach stank of dead smelts.
