Hello dears,

I don't know if this is the right forum, but for sure Lindaland is the appropriate place to put a poem called: "Pluto"... it's not mine, it's written by an american women poet, and I find it nice!
There is this website in which I registered and they send me "poems of the day" every day. I share this with you.

Enjoy and have a good day!


"PLUTO"
BY MAGGIE DIETZ

Don't feel small. We all have
been demoted. Go on being

moon or rock or orb, bouyant
and distant, smallest craft ball

at Vanevenhoven's Hardware
spray-painted purple or day-glow

orange for a child's elliptical vision
of fish line, cardboard and foam.

No spacecraft has touched you,
no flesh met the luster of your

heavenly body. Little cold one, blow
your horn. No matter what you are

planet, and something other than
planet, ancient but not "classical,"

the controversy over what to call you
light-hours from your ears. On Earth

we tend to nurture the diminutive,
root for the diminished. None

of your neighbors knows your name.
Nothing has changed. If Charon's

not your moon, who cares? She
remains unmoved, your companion.
