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
