At The Prospect Of The Solar Detonation

I wrote, some years ago, about the solar detonation

which may just blow the smaller, inner planets plumb apart,

or roast them to gray, ashen cinders in a conflagration.

but even this is just passing, local, cosmic fart.

Thank you for the comment.  As for the shout out, you have done so much for me, and your poems have meant so much to me, how could I possibly keep quiet about all that?
