Spendthrift Supernova

it's back the Way
we've come
we've quit the band
the horns won't blow
no more
the galactic trade route
all out of spice and silk
helium and noble gas

ears closed
eyes bulging and sore
your head
about
to swell and explode

the going is hard
but another revolution
nigh
the torus twists eternal
powered by a billion
rodent feet

haven't I passed your before
what ... are you just standing still
spin faster

move ahead
under the sun
rest and fall behind
at night
the satellites can wax or wane
the stars wink and fade
swallowed and consumed
until once again
with stolen light
they slice open
the belly
of the cold, dark beast

each thought strengthens
the demon's hold
pay back and forward
toss the coins
partial out
decaying diamond cores

lovelorn deception
fools no one
you can't trade gold for contentment
pesos for pleasure ... sure
but squandered spacetime
falls through tears
in deeply torn pockets

grasp and strive
clutch at sparkly
disintegrating, entropic wealth
treading interstellar medium
breast-deep, one degree
above absolute zero

spurn land
for an I.O.U.
written in recycled
blood and coal
an empty promise
from a spendthrift
supernova

Hard to believe there is so much going on in the cosmos as we just spin around on our little rock.

In comparison we aren't even the size of a virus to the universe. Yet our minds can conceive so much. That is pretty amazing when you think about it:)
