Born Again – a poem

***

Cloudless grins that face maniacal

Down from a solid silver sky,

Steam of crystalline metals rising

As it boils from oceans and beds,

From lakes as yet unnamed by man.

*
Unseen, unknown, the nearest star lights

This little known world, green glow

Binary twins bake this land,

Silver sky slices hotly slavering

As the liquid crystal metal bodies bubble.

*

Up, up rise those fumes of alive funk

To that cloudless stratosphere, less calm

To contain clouds come at long last,

Runaway gradehouse effects blaze

Trials bitter alkaline, post planet storm

Fugue.

*

The pressure mounts, tectonic lack

Forcing the explosions, flame spirals

In jets spaceward jubilant to be free,

Molten crust smoothing all cracks,

Born again baby under green twin stars

Dreams.
