Informal Names


We can’t help seeing
whales and donuts
in tholin fields and craters.

So informal names are given,
some in remembrance
others just for fun.

Cthulhu roams his own region.
Hillary and Norgay
claim more mountains.

It’s how we attach ourselves
to places far away.

Some names will stick around,
too perfect to change.
Others might
like a Balrog
fall down a hole
into oblivion.
