To mark the 83rd birthday today, 11th February, of Glenna Luschei, the U.S. author and editor and a Vice-President of Interlitq, the review publishes Luschei’s poem:

uranus

The Fabulous Planet Uranus

 

for my birthday February 11

 

Like me, Uranus takes eighty-four years to circle the sun.

We’re just now winding up, off to a rocky start

on the next orbit.  I won’t last that ride

but we’re stocking up on provisions anyway.

 

Like me, Uranus lies sideways on its axis.

I can never get it right but am fortunate to be singled out

for this quirky ride.  I don’t mind sharing my birthday

with others.  Thomas Edison, for one, also intent

 

on incandescence, and Burt Reynolds.

Uranus, cold, blue and windy, you are the God

of the sky.   You are the reason I skate on ice.
