The Conquest Of Space

Ashley tugged

rearranging her big-screen television

as the screen flickered

showing ground-control Houston’s celebration.

The camera zoomed-in to a man with a glass.

Ashley stepped back to appraise her taste.

“Gentlemen,” the man said, “a toast –

To the successful conquest of space.”

“Yes,” Ashley said, “just right –

Everything in its proper place.”
