Thank You, Mr. Prometheus



That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
– Neil Armstrong, July 20, 1969


Jupiter laughed
When man first sparked flames for himself;
(Sure, his public face was aghast)
With his eyes upon us
He rested
And waited.

Just yesterday
Jupiter took Juno’s hand,
Lead her to Olympus’ edge,
Spread his hand across the canopy;
Then he kissed her
And waited.
