Summer Vacation

I tied my hammock
Between Jupiter
And Saturn’s rings
And settled down
To watch comets
Go by
Beating the summer
Heat far
Away from the sun
In the cosmic silence
Dreaming of babbling
Brooks
And long stretches
Of sand and blue ocean
I awoke when a
Curious stargazer
From NASA poked
Me in the eye
And knew it was
Time to go
