Eyes on her gimbals
with the same straight stare
she gives Ken
when he waxes his car
she brings her in
over the craters
one eye out the window
hands on the controls
watching her Newtons
maneuvering the LM
as easily
as the Kenmobile
standing
shoeless
on her tippy toes
pink heels
kicked off to the side
we all see a little dust kicking up now
then the lights
contact!
the girl
has landed
a girl
has landed.
