Solar System Poems 8: One Of The Friends

She is a Titan, but no Titan.  
Sister to Rhea and Tethys in lore,
but better known in current tales
as one of the Friends.

Indeed she is more friend than kin
to those we call "regular"--
dressing in black, out of sync,
favoring retro 
and flying the wrong direction.

How many stories she could tell,
and what secrets lurk,
peeking out from inside!
Joining the TNO diaspora,
riding with the Centaurs,
greeting Cassini at the city gates
and consenting to a few pictures
before going on her own way.
