In summary,
we’re sending you this record

because here on Earth

we sing
we greet each other
we marvel

at an X-rayed hand
beside the “Rite of Spring”
and strands of DNA
unraveling

pieces of ourselves
assembled
just once

for you

believe us
as you listen

we love
down to the smallest
groove.

  1. I am blown away by your work. Could I use your poems for my English class?…..I teach second language learners.

    • Thanks so much for your kind note! And I’m honored that you’d like to use my poems in your class. By all means, use them. All the best to you.

        Thank you!

  2. The golden record puts our best feet forward, and your poem glows. Let’s hope the Arcturans or whoever are not too disappointed when they play our flip side, our dark side, the side we try to conceal from the Universe.

    Love your stuff.
