Palmer’s Star

When a star is born
and drifts away from its mother
when the bonds of gravity pull like taffy
thinning, but never gone
when satellites emerge or are drawn in
comets settling down
when its mother dies
and it sees that last light
from millions of years before
having mourned her death
for those millions of years
what can it do but look to its planets and moons
friends and lovers
with the desperate boyish hope
somehow that he resembles her
if they never saw her light
through him they will remember her

Wish you were here…

Shooting Star (a waltz— or a lullaby in 6/8)

burning and hurtling down to the ground

the meteor falls through the sky

a firework bursts as the man comes in first

the heavens reflect in her eye

burning and hurtling down to the ground

I saw it approach from afar

what could it be is it really meant for me

the wish that I made on a star

burning and hurtling down to the ground

oh what a spectacular crash

I dream of a world made of nothing but snow

and ice that’s the color of ash

burning and hurtling down to the ground

I scream in delight as I fall

across millions of years of space I have fled

with my covers pulled up and my hands to my head

arriving just now in a glorious blaze

slicing through doubt and accustomed malaise

as I hurtle, unfurl to the end of all time

the loss of all history the death of all rhyme

implacable speed in an infernal shroud

I cry out once more as I burst through the cloud

rain becomes steam in the instant before

before I close the door.
