Time Machine - Poem by John M. Marshall

Time Machine

against a black sky
blacker than any coal
Jupiter & Venus
side X side
Jupiter @ 12
Venus @ 3
2 diamonds
of night's
wispy dreams
the entire sky
lantern on the bow
lantern @ starboard
the ides of march
Venus @ 12
Jupiter @ 7
after the rain
crystalline stillness
spirits of my ancestors
to the pine trees
like dew
1 becomes
become 3
become 10
vernal equinox
Arcturus @ 12
Saturn @ 3
utter silence
n0 alphabet
in the cirrus
the earth
@ pax
the merest shadow
of a wish
with lacey lightning
star 2 star
