Night Sky / Cosmic Whirl

Night Sky / Cosmic Whirl
(a crayon sketch by Red Shuttleworth)



Night Sky / Cosmic Whirl

Endless asteroid slam-down possibilities,
vaporization of sci-fi theater marquees.

You could say we're rockbound...
that the sky is a rock concert...
that humanity has had its vignette.

Cyclical wrinkles, flaring lines
over Seattle or  Spokane or...
or We're out of milk...
can you pick me up early from work?

Constellations of catastrophe...
NASA asteroid photographs...
stock market offers in asteroid mining.
Cobalt, water, and nickel for pistol plating!

Open expanse of dream-noir rocketry...
arrive-distant preceding yourself...
lost from all you'd hoped to love.
