Sporing Aloft

by Dan Campion

“NASA Advances Research to Grow Habitats in Space from Fungi”

One day the earthbound homeless may
Gaze skyward on clear nights
And know that on some Martian bay
Space tourists see the sights
And Moon-based colonists sleep snug
In cozy mushroom huts.
Earth gravity at work, they’ll shrug,
Aware this world is nuts.
