Expanding Horizons

1.
I remember
      as a child
standing
      on a pebble shore
watching ships
      at sea
sailing
      uncaring
over
      the edge
            of the world.

I see
      moon
sphere
      of old age
visitor
      in ancient days
            and now
instrument
      of early myth

and sun
      mother of life
            father of destruction
whose bloated death
      one day
will burn
      this iron
            Earth
                  away.


2.
Look up
      on the open nights
see the cities
      the suns

see the stars
      the wild havens
            the countable finities

mark
      the horizon of light
mark
      that ten
            billion
                  years.

All
      that can be seen
            to all
is
      an ounce of decency
            to God.

This universe
      this bubble
in a foam
      of multiverse.

All histories
      all possible
            all happened.

it's my hands
my difficulty with melancholy
hence the coldness
fear in flight, god
dog sea
