Clearing Taurid swarm.
Solar sails fill rapidly!
Onwards, oh, onwards.

webs collecting stardust
spun between the moons
of a binary star

those humming green moons
make for the finest moonshine
in this star system

cave art on Pluto
the eight-handed tentacles
in bold red relief

these red radishes
should not be evolving, but —
on Phobos they are

swimmers of Titan
win gold over the Earthlings
Solar System Games

the titanium threads
sewn through the primary gills
Neptunian torture

the Martian riverbed
a faded green protrusion
another skeleton

Callisto calls me
tidally locked in orbit
the sub-Jovian point

the space lumberjacks
laser-cutting crystalline trunks
among the dwarf stars
