Collecting Jellyfish on Neptune XVI

by Mary E. Lowd

A moment of communion
A sample taken
To bring home
To her spaceship’s aquarium
A laboratory, orbiting
The world she’s been exploring
Where she can discover
—try to uncover—
The genetic secrets of this
Wonderful, quasi-magical
Bioluminescent, quantum-radical
