Relativity

April 5, 2009

Shut the bedroom door
The lock clicks as it throws
The room into darkness
Lying on my back I can see
My index finger trace
A satellite’s trajectory across
The smoky black curtain
Spread above us
My eyes scan the horizon
Searching for Saturn
After all, it is my
Favorite planet

A sudden flash of light
The tail of a comet screams
Past in the silence of space
Tiny bits of rock, born on
The other side of existence
Paint bright red lines
Through the atmosphere
And land on your pink cheeks
Ripe from the sun’s caress
They’ve come all this way
To become the freckles
Below those perfect eyes
We are floating quietly
Beyond all we’ve ever known
For an eternity and a half
Just so that we can return
And see the world
Come to ruin
