A committee debates
your timeless label
as you take your place behind
shadowy, bitter Pluto
in the galactic hierarchy.
You may not have
the radiant beauty of Venus
or the bloody glow of Mars
or even the senex pull
of Saturn with his rings—
but I hope they do you justice
for history’s sake.
Nothing so vast
should be labeled
for all eternity.
