Proxima Centauri

Night theorizes itself

Over & out of social disorder

Replenishes its icy glances

Through gifts

& other expenses

Set on invisible tallies

The year closes with more

Questions than answers

About snowflake geometries

& silence & persistence

That beats us

Bows tied up

In trembling buildings

Which may or may not

Withstand these blistering

Currents that came before us

& will live on after stars

You never complain about the weather

Because it marks changes

Inside & outside of you

In theories of enveloping sweetening darkness

At cherished sun downs

Where all is forgotten

Sent to proxima centauri

Or to Jupiter & Mercury

On rotations which

No longer abide by laws of gravity

We revive our dormant praxes

An evening of things

At dusk

Thoughts in mind

A trillion

Little things

Are more


One big thing

Don’t they understand?

The unmakers

Of things?

Wrapping themselves

Up with their versions

Of things

We all know though

You can’t forever

Hide from things

Dear gentle unicorn

Oh happy centaur

There is another way

The remakers

Have spoken

An evening

Of things


All will be


All of it

& stars are more

Than we make of them

Retaking pictures

Mineral angles

Reflecting things

Shining clear


You are perfect


In the after

We will live

In the eyes

Of a trillion


More stars






& near


& far

In comparison
