The Moon City

Exiting the café, I remembered I hadn’t taken my muscular gravity supplements. I quickly popped the pill, uncomfortably imagining my skeletal and muscular systems wasting away in the low Lunar gravity. I shambled down the hallway outside, past the genetically modified plants and artistic fountains. I heard someone call out and turned to see a friend of mine, an engineer, loping up behind me. “How goes the playwriting?” he asked, a grin on his face. I shook my head, wanting to talk about anything else. “Not much success. How is the engineering life going?” We fell into shuffling step, passing a huge greenhouse branching away from us into the Lunar mountains. “Oh, you know, same trouble as ever. That moon dust destroys everything from machinery to spacesuits. We think we might have a drop on it this time though.” I nodded, sipping my drink through a straw. He seemed to hesitate, finally leaning in when a couple of police officers had passed. “Look, friend, I care about you. You are a ridiculously bright artist. But you need to get moving and write something. It’s been months since you wrote anything, and there is only room in this city for doers.” “What are they going to do?” I asked. “Throw me out an airlock?” He didn’t answer, which alarmed me more than anything he had said. He peeled off to the right, toward the communications center. I was left standing in the hallway, busy people bustling around me. I looked up past the glowing streetlights to see the faraway sphere of Earth hanging in the black sky. “Is there anyplace I can go,” I wondered, “where people will love me—not just the things I accomplish?” • Kevin Zeller • Read Ephesians 2:8-10.
