we made it to
the moon decades ago and
now i can check
how much it’ll cost
to get a kilo into
space.

it ain’t shit, is it,
soon we’ll be on mars,
we’ll be back on the
moon,
space travel will
be like
domestic air travel.

i wish my
grandfather
was here to see it,

he used to collect every
popular mechanics magazine
and he didn’t even speak
english, he knew
just enough to read
about space travel and
flying cars and alternative
energy, the year was 1968
and he put the magazine down
on the kitchen table
and swept the
dirt floors in mexico city,
and now they’re reading
a poem about you
in space.
