Frabjous Times

Neptune, the Mystic

last rock out . next door to comet flock
bromine-caked shores . vast flat gas-ice plains
not to strive . slow plod around the rim
sensor nets primed . looking for like minds
water like iron . hydrogen pooled
looking out . light-years of nothingness
the fifth substance . this blue-tinged planet
