Called in for Reception

The rocket moves in the opposite direction
of progress, sliding backwards
in a severe case of retrograde motion,
Mission Control asks me to do something to control
what is quickly slipping from their grasp,
they needed an artist of sorts to make things better.

So I made a quick suggestion,
shifting a few stars here and there and drawing up
new horizons in outer space, good maneuvers
that reconfigured the arc into a smile,
though by this time the rocket was gone
settling down into a new orbit as a fatal satellite
