A new telescope rockets into the sky.
Hubbel’s magnification suffers in comparison.
Your birding scope
is good enough to view the moon.
I have no need to see a planet
wobble the light of a distant star.
From the New Mexico desert floor
we watch tourists skyrocket for a quick orbit.
They land and claim they are changed
by looking from on high.
