Plasma churns and burns

In the heart of a heavenly star

Heating random worlds

Kindling transformations

Rocks and cratered dirt

In an unfashionable agglomeration

At the edge of the Andromeda galaxy

Glitter on black velvet

And on a nearby living planet aliens peer into sky

As if it has something in it’s teeth

And I am looking back through a kaleidoscope

From the outer Milky Way

Stoned and silly-serious

Trying to work out what it all means

If anything at all

Trying to puzzle out a pattern from disparate signals

We are the stuff of stars

We are transcendent and tremendous

We are the crap of the cosmos

Psychiatrist taps patient on head and says: 'Have you tried turning it off and turning it on again.'

Therapize me
Socialize me
Sanitize me
Prophesize me
And I will be there
To create some sort of design
For her meaningless expressions
And I will be there
To manifest silent animus
Towards her flagrant love

Categorize me
Emphasize me
Prioritize me
Memorize me
And I will be there
To problematize your remembering
And dance in the face of fervent divas
And I will be there
To sulk in the moonlit kisses of your embraces
And re-emphasize your star-dazzled smile
And I will be there
To miss you in dense forests
And break up into pieces at the edges of the galaxy
