Having Immense Tourist Appeal

by Steve Sneyd

footprints undisturbed
in dust odd how watch
us like creature eyes

tiny immortal-like
solar battery still
waves flag in no-air

welcome back to glory
is ghost subtext in
between lines of plaque

teevee made this white
skull seem such
wonder part of being

young anyway at least
brochure was right low
grav lets us leap as

if were again and who
knows wish right upon
blue ball below will be

leap never need come
down again float on
forever ever wingfoot

no winter gale no aging
bones and on and on safe
safe where dust satyr

still does what it’s
told is almost just as if
this were our destined world.
