Astrophotographer Seeks Stellar Bodies


The Beginning Is Near

Astrophotographer Seeks Stellar Bodies

bodies to the astrophotographer
might make you crazy
but makes him slightly more sane

an invincible universe
powered by amoeboid quanta
a challenge to undo

space from the wall of death
seen through cadaverous eyes
and high nose to sniff out subtitles

he looks out for his chances
on that carousel ride to nowhere
confusing painted animals and gods

some seek mountains to climb
others pursue galaxies to conquer
they run rings around the planets

they turn on the metaphysical countertop
clearly, effectively, always sustainably
communication tries, people don’t succeed
