A Meteor, Right? (Science Poem?) - Poem by Chuck Audette

if you look up at the sky's dark shore
and see the flash of a meteor,
and instead of fading, it seems more bright
you might soon be dead from a meteorite!

    Very funny, great stuff.
    My good Sir, you underestimate
    me as one smart fella
    Because I have a good umbrella.

    On 11-03 I wrote 'Like Shooting Stars.' Today I read this by you. Are we psychic, psycho or what. You don't have to hit me in the head before I see the light. (Report)Reply

    And if by chance, you're scientifically inclined,
    A telescope, binoculars
    Will magnify the jocular
    Results. Reality betrays the popular,
    Albeit, nerdish cosmic fascinations,
    And all those brain-stem machinations,
    With retinae detached, I'm blind.

    I like your comment on 'Stellar Matter' much better than Mark Fry's. And speaking of getting 'fry'ed, here is my poetic response to your response to my poem.


    Out of the stars, blazing the night,
    falls Charles Audette’s “A Meteor, Right? ”
    I’m smoking—carbonized! —or worse
    struck dumb by this flaming lump of verse!
