One Poem by Susan Tepper & Art by Digby Beaumont




How will lift-off

be accomplished

what with cracks &

fissures showing

in the craft


Though I’m desperate to go



And you assured me

all had been

engineered specifically


taking into account

any possible mishaps


Immediately raising my red flag




Brimming with stardust

the craft

seemed under-stocked

on food & essentials


Though the wine cellar

held enough to get us

there— and on to

Venus if we wanted
