WHITE DWARF
(11/29/09)


they
want us
to really care
about society's woes
the dilapidated dross
of assorted humans
institutions
and beleaguered
beliefs

I do
understand
their concern
but I tend to take
the long term look
on this pathetic collection
of short term
biological
affairs

what nature
doesn't eventually solve
on an earthbound
basis
with fires
winds
floods
quakes
and disease
the
cosmos
will most
certainly correct

stars tire
of the task
of illumination
finally tossing their mantles
of glowing effluence
to permanently calm
their collapsing cores
and to parboil
their planetary
parasites

a cathartic
cataclysm

a solar system
of cinders
and silence
still circling
the gleaming skull
of a sleeping
sun
