Treasure Island

Sad Saga Of NASA

so you sent off some rockets-
to the moon, no less-

starting in 69,
an auspicious sign

for tao watchers
and any others

with a sense of history.
there was poetry

in those encounters.
so what happened?

you scooped up a few stones
and left. you haven't been back since.

nasa* what's your reason
for not spending

at least
one scientific season

on that orb
we poets time stars by

and watch blue horsemen pass
white sparkling splashing satin?

*National Aeronautics and Space Administration, USA

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Armies of archaeologists have spent generations exhaustively researching ancient Egyptian sites. The moon has been visited by a few rock collecting day trippers. Curious.
