twilight of milky sky’s,
after massive stars, in spark
may ever after sadness say farewell
as I depart
for throughout time and fractured space
the epic battles bear me far
I pray to see my masters face
as I depart for yonder bar.

O reflection,
The great purple witch rides this night
Untrusting, through prow or strength
Without safety of flight
For by glance, by wicked snare
Lies the darkend smile, of Rigel’s glare.

The darkness, of white
Tops sheathed, in black bright
Streak –
Through the shadows, to break free
And take flight.

I am energies
For the void, not yet formed
Through degenerate emission

We have built a jewel
A monument of color
Facing a blackness, forever tomb

So I call these filaments
A mark of remembrance
Where the unfaithful,

Watch the redHa shine
Broken – into newborn life
In the memory, of death.

A single point of motion
From a helium fusion shield
Is the answer, in a question
From its complex –
Radiant field.

Mythical mysteries
Of confounding,
Dark scales

Strikes through
Its long history
Through compounding, contrails.

Massively cool
And intrinsically strange
Are the filaments, of dust
Through the complex –
Of change.

Vapors of dioxide
Released through splice
Reveal –
Their residual
In resplendent, dark ice.

Uncommon equations
Of a negative, dark mass
Is gravitationally, irrelevant
Like a motion –
That’s past.
