(A face-on galaxy lies precisely in front of another spiral galaxy. The chance alignment allows us to see the dark material in the front galaxy, thanks to the glow of the galaxy behind it.)

Every Thursday, I post a very large photograph of some corner of space captured by the Hubble Space Telescope and available online from the picture album at HubbleSite, followed by poetry after the jump.

(sung to the tune of Over The River And Through The Woods)

by Maggie Jochild

Out of the city and into the woods
To lesbian land we go
Our truck tires have spikes
To carry the dykes
Through the mud and drifting sno-ow

Away from misogyny, commerce and mess
To wimmin's land we press
We'll cleanse our heads and share our beds
With thanks to Great Goddess
