“Space Case SuperStar,” by Katherine McIntyre

Nov 20th, 2008 | By | Category: Poetry

You’re my Venus, pretty lady,
Aphrodite of a sulfuric acid.
Morning Star sometimes,
your alluring eyes sparkle
like misleading stars.

Larger than Earth can encompass
Your beauty holds no bounds.
No, not large like a Double Cheeseburger.
I’m talking spacy, darling.

Hair blonde like the gaseous swirls that
Remind me of a half eaten Milky Way Bar.
An extraterrestrial love we have,
Not even your opaque clouds can diminish my
fervor for Venusian beauty.
Earth can’t take the competition,
You’re on a planet of your own.
