O Susannah

a Science Fiction Novelette in Verse by Mary Alexandra Agner 

Cover art courtesy of Denis Moskowitz.

The novelette tells the tale of Edy, Charlotte, and Hélena as they build and administer the first human settlement on Pluto.

The impact of one single drop of water
depressing down the surface of the lake
of hydrogen and harder metals (now
condensed into the Solar System) starts
to spread out waves of life, their frequency
a constant push with changing amplitude:
the ripples bifurcate and recombine
at Luna, Mars, the Galilean moons,
the ever-outward eyes undaunted by
the size and scale and scope. Life finds a way.
