Dome with Stars ~ Katharine Coles

I think to feel better. I need no
Time to prepare. Lying here

On the floor, the problem is

Never enough, too many
Inches and eons. The program

Loads while the house lights

Fade. Stars, then the computer
Glitches and the wiz

Pushing switches says, ignore

The horizon, restarts and
The universe fills. Burgeon

And strew fool mind into

Seeing all the way
Where space fires and flames

Out, forgetting all can’t be

Twinkle and rapture when
Forever’s dark and cold.
