Mars Summer 2018
John I. Blair
Never in all these many years
Has Mars looked quite like this.
Standing in the midnight dark
I stare out through the tangled trees
And see a brilliant spark
Transfix the southern sky.
Among white stars a crimson eye
Stares cold across the cosmos,
Calls to doubt my Terra-centered universe,
Evokes old gods and older fears.
