These poems were originally published on The Mystic Nebula but their website went down in Dec. 2015, so I have re-posted them here.
Unimaginably huge collisions
Not only of planets, or of stars, but of entire galaxies
Violent colors sprayed across the universe
It should be terrifying
But it is frozen beauty on the grandest of scale
As I watch
I have to wonder
Is there something that watches me
If I really move
Or if I am as still as the stars
I have conquered this world
Every beast, mountain, ocean, and tree.
They said it wouldn’t be done
They said it could never be
But I have done it, I have done it, I HAVE DONE IT!
As I float in the black among the stars above
Oh! It is such a glorious sight to see.
The ashes smoldering down below
Of the world that accused me of microencephaly.
