I would like to see
A flying saucer
Sometime before
I die.

I'd like to uncover
The truth within
And the alien answer
To why.

The inflationary era
Of the early universe
In a small, hot, quantum state
Is incredibly perverse.

The so-called vacuum energy
Of a quantum field traverse
Will quickly change into a seething soup
In an elementary particle reverse.

A calming wake
A striking gaze
A wondrous image of
Heavenly phase.

A calming sense
A turbulent maze
A timeless image of
Atmospheric rage.

Sons of a strange God
and the daughters of men
choose not what they see
and never not what is when.

Giants unto the earth
from the beginning, then
are the Sons that emerge
from the strange daughters of men.

Composite compositions
Of steller renditions
Are insufficient to announce
What mysteries are aroused
By the lack, in fact, of a crater vision.

high-energy radiation
blazing slowly away
is eroding itself
in a stable element decay.

its primitive nature
and its nuclear spray
lacks heavier elements
for a blowing cavity foray.

Discover a time
Without feature
A marvelous detection
Of a creature
Enveloped by light
Undiscovered by sight
A hidden gift
From an unknown
Teacher.

Parabolic orbits
In twilight skipping skies
Simply celebrates in causing
Fates predictable lies.

A parabolic image
Of a comets knowing whys
Produces catastrophic outcomes
With cataclysmic ties.

From a new knowledge gain
Is a mesmerising image
A confirmed, Titan rain.

The secret author
of cosmic cruelty
trembles in terror
from the power of
its beauty.

The secret author
of cosmic beauty
disguises its horror
and ignores its
own cruelty.

went a star
reaching past history, far
recorded by time
commanded to find
a signal, or a reason, from afar.
