Lakes on Titan

Baikal of the Kurykans lies cold beneath the canopy of stars;

water reflecting sky, ancient watchers bearing the crescent

moon in a boat, the breastbone of the earth cloven deep

beneath the pale and stellate glory of the Milky Way.

Cronus of the Greeks consumes his children, ruling the outer planets

from the depths of Tartarus, among the gods and titans.

The lakes of Titan are cold, and absent water reflect only black.
