Poem of the Week | The Rover by Jen Hughes

The Rover

By Jen Hughes


Has been lost to the dust storms.

Spirit crashed
On the punishing terrain below.

So now there’s just me Curiosity
Finding out as much as I can About this cold, aloof world.

Maybe I will find Opportunity and Spirit along the way.


‘The Rover’ is from the debut chapbook from Jen Hughes, Keep on Spinning (Dreich Press, 2020)
