CURSE
OF THE STAR-PILOT'S
HUSBAND



 
 
 



 

In the vast envelope of sidereal space 
she has conjugated every constellation 
and calculated instantaneous interstellar 
trajectories that convert the inconceivable 
distances of the space-time continuum to 
the flip of a switch, a single calibration.

She has sampled systems by the score,
planets and moons by a score times ten,
the colors and vistas of alien landscapes,
the incomprehensible customs of complex 
extraterrestrial cultures, the flavors and 
fashions of worlds far beyond human ken.

When he kama-sutras her from head to toe 
with tactile skill (even if he does it twice), 
when he exhibits the long-distance stamina 
of a marathon medalist and explores every
erogenous nook and cranny known to man, 
she merely whispers: "That was nice."
