Out-of-copyright text borrowed for a poem.  The phrase "I am on Earth right now" comes from NASA's "Global Selfie" initiative for Earth Day today.  Underlying image to the left was taken by the Juno spacecraft.  (Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Malin Space Science Systems).  Underlying image to the right is from an old out-of-print work. I am indebted to Dr. David Grinspoon for proposing "I am not on Earth right now" as a counterpoint.  Without his insight, this piece would not have been born.
