What’ll it Be?
Lauren McBride

First bar built on Mars.
My first Martian drink.
Might try a “Marstini,”
or “Blue Sunset Blink.”

This poem first appeared in Star*Line 39.4, Fall 2016 with the following note: Dust in the Martian atmosphere deflects blue light less than red, resulting in ruddy daytime skies and blue sunsets.
