Supreme Test

the atmosphere of Mercury,
replenished by our star's
hurricane of particles,
more tenuous than Mars

in the darkened shadows
in perpetual shade
a polar crater paradox
in solar storms is made

ionizing fingers
of electric currents flow
brushing unseen everywhere
making some things glow

Mercury keeps spinning
although synchronized
day and year so very close
tidally it's tied

to the same entity
as Pluto and the rest
the solar supreme deity
which puts it to the test

this is where we must meet
this is where we must go
proving that we can escape
everything we know
