Neil Armstrong, Poet

“You’re go for landing, Eagle.”
“Houston, roger that
Imagination realized
With German at my back
The laws of physics working great
A short 3 days from earth
Oberth, von Braun, Rilke
Thank you very much.”
“Repeat that, Eagle.  ‘Ricky’?”
“Houston, R-I-L-K-E.
Or how I know
I’ll live again
In the multiverse.”
“Reading you loud and clear, Eagle, uh
But be advised to permutate
One moon at a time.”
