Inspired by Sergio Leone’s Man with No Name, cult-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett oozes danger and intrigue. Here, he contemplates his identity as an orphaned clone.




Breathless, part-digested

In my Sarlacc half-tomb:

Time for silent reflection.


Your cookie-cutter clone,

Father: my Mace-red eyes saw you

Relieved of helmet and head  

By that humming purple blade.


We bled the same blood, but

Beneath battered Beskar my heart beats.

Twin to mine in every other way… yours does not.

This tentacled embrace gives me no comfort.


Breathe in. Break free.
