(dedicated to former planet Pluto)
On a rocky outcrop of your ice-laden heart,
we sacrificed your stature.
Despite seven-six years of service,
retirement was no guarantee.
Nix and Hydra still shadow you
holding up your Kuiper belt.
Your union with Charon, however,
remains an unconsummated affair.
Highly eccentric and inclined to dramatic
circles of ovoid oblivion,
You rotate off-kilter, adrift,
your volatile nature frozen in time.
