haiku sequence

 


ELEMENTS

unstable the man-made elements

mercury rising
we are all
cancers

on the event horizon an accident half-life

background radiation
in the other world we are
anti-matter

entropy all but non-linear trash

forgetting
the slow-motion crush
of gravity

distant stars and my music among them
