Fast Day 343 January 3 2014 Hunting On Europa

 Solar Sail Spaceships

Hunting On Europa

a small solar sail 200 miles long
above the hunter’s flat fowler space ship,
painted camo in steampunk greens and tan
intended for only an intrepid,
an explorer
or maybe two, and their faithful dog entanglement.

the sun oozes into the photon trap,
swelling slowly and starving of the light
of small stars by swampy brown dwarf planets,
shallow creek scull;
we crouch in the prow, looking for Europa’s birds.

Camo "On The Wing"  Wm. Lamb and Son
