The Night Sky

In the night sky of floating ice, burning rocks, emerges a disk of pale quartz, lit by halcyon sun lamp; in the wings, floodlights- glassy emanations of white diamonds squeeze from the charcoal mantle twinkling hot flashes of digested plasma; on the dark perimeter, hoary stalagmites with strobe lights powered by a solar battery spin in their planetary orbits; shooting across ethereal bow, cannon balls- igneous boulders of ice and dust with fiery dragon tails stream into the murky, dark sea of oblivion
