Egrets Reading

On the Crest of Victoria Crater (Mars rover poem)

Just wanted to let you all know that my poem, On the Crest of Victoria Crater is now online at DKA Magazine. One interesting challenge of writing poetry to the latest news from NASA is that the facts can change overnight! Since I wrote this poem, they've now found evidence of water on the surface of Mars which changes things a little bit for the poem. However, as a friend pointed out, there's no great lakes lying around for the rovers to find, so I think the poem still holds up to scientific scrutiny (as long as the reader accepts the fictional existance of the poem's Martians, that is...)
