i was just going through my old files, making sure i don't have any more problems there. and i stumbled across a bunch of poems i wrote way back at JPL. they all suck, of course, but this one is kind of cool. (i was really obsessed with Mars 7 back then, and one thought led to another.)

it floats, or flies, micrometeor scarred
encrusted with ice, out between the stars
no life within or without for parsecs around
millennium past since it heard any sounds
a silent tribute to a long gone race
but it does not know, light years in space
destined to continue at its present speed
not a fraction of c, but that's all it needs
it slowly leaves the past behind
carrying a plaque for alien minds
the last record of what its makers were
on a desolate space probe, Voyager
