Life Goes On
Hydroponics have gone Precambrian,
olive green cyanobacteria
coat the trays where tomatoes
and beans once grew,
and there's something ediacaran
about the thin flat worms
peristaltically climbing
the pitted walls.

Blue Star by morning,
red star at dusk,
the ship's new ecology,
metazoan free,
eats the controls,
and does not wonder.
