@ 27.105 MHz: Four Kyoka Form A Quatrain; Astronomical Party, One Fairly Nice Night

Your lover thinks your

expanding telescope---six

feet of its barrel---

dramatically prove farther

stars are as beautiful too.

 

Their light gathers in

the slender shapeliness of

its length after the

incredible journey through

all those light years' distance.

 

And when your fingers

turn those fine focusing gears,

space takes on the look

of metallic blue fabric

(like the park's flaccid wind socks).

 

The stars' lights sheathe them

in iridescence.  His---your

companion---desires

to begin to explain the

stellar cores that surge and seethe.
