TESS

TESS

(Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite)

 

She set aloft smooth on her slim white rocket

into the blue air above the sea,

the shape of fire around her like wings.

Her great voice diminished as she rose.

An angel made from bits of Earth,

sent out because we cannot bear,

in all the heavens, to be alone.
