From NASA with love for Christmas: is over

PIA09220_orig (1)

even in the stars
fill the void

I peer
at the shapes

and I can see
war helmets

and I hear the sound
of jackboots
crushing light
beneath them

are the times
that they are

nothing I can do
will change them

I know …

I know
I wonder what a day
will be like

and I wonder
what world
what universe
might remain
when the march
is over

when this old march
that I can see
