Stardust Reveries

Then he waited, marshaling his thoughts and brooding over his still untested powers. For though he was master of the world, he was not quite sure what to do next. But he would think of something.” ~2001: A Space Odyssey; Arthur C. Clarke

So say that the tattoos

On phantom skin

Are cobwebs of stars

.

Maybe the atmosphere

That you breathed

Pierce the veil and mars

.

Birthed from singularity

Incandescence of

A binary planet system

.

Suspended animations

Earth’s a play toy

Unbeknownst to realm

.

Hyperspace surrealism

White dwarf on a

Sun’s horizon falling fast

.

Man was built for clever

Whims, yet, they

Are never meant to last

.

Crash through a Stargate

Extrasolar negative

Transcending humanity

.

Tip of an ethereal finger

Detonating dawn

Instilling a false clarity

.

Interstellar absurdities

Ebon polaris pins

Andromeda memories

.

Make way for hydrogen

Of one star child

And its stardust reveries.
