I am neither Moon nor Sun

I am neither Moon

nor Sun;

all I can choose

is an orbit made

by hand

saturning the other suns

and moons of other planets

no name given

in the solar system

because I am artificial

but when I can't be the sun

and refuse to be the moon

I would rather be Sputnik;

though I am made by others

I can at least

resemble the sun

when I burn up

in the atmosphere

The End
