THE STATE OF FRIEDA ROSE’S PLANET (August Postcard Poetry 2018)

Let others anguish over the fate

of Earth.

She fixates on Pluto

unlucky planet

now just a dwarf.

The Earth has had its heyday

prosperous mother

bountiful lover

Now humans’ cheap whore

But Pluto?

Namesake of hell

slow-moving ice sphere

red-faced owner of a ferryman moon?

Always mistaken for a slap happy cartoon

Pluto’s saving grace

is its mythical affinity

for lovers separated by death.
