metallic storm

stars are brightest in the desert
and from there you can clearly
see the other worlds

beneath the sand the past lives on
beating shallow breathes and
awaiting the next impact

time travelers land without incident
collecting precious data
left behind by meteorites

full moon pushes old photographs
onto the new shoreline
giving rise to the possibility
that life somehow lived on

june two thousand fourteen

metallic storms

this little planet
collects preciousness
from throughout the galaxy

this ring shines
from outside energies
we’ve yet to understand

the established gods
refuse to assign value
for what is worthless

without ending
where would we begin

march two thousand thirteen
