Sunday Shorts: UpClose and Personal

By Sarah Cate Anstey, Aug 21 2016 09:00AM

The Moon: Up Close and Personal

Even the greatest of ancient minds

Venerated, high above their empires

Artemis: The unreachable huntress

Diana: The untouchable virgin

But modern man accomplished what

Their predecessors could only dream

Of mastering. Sending Apollo to expose

The deceit if his sister’s beauty.

Worshippers of metallic gods

They trampled over Selene’s

Pocked marked, crater face

And thrusted flags in her eye

When the truth is revealed

Mysticism shatters, magic ends

One small step for man

One giant leap for mankind?
