This is the dream.
I am a comet,
and spectral tail ablaze.
In the blackest corner of
a starless sky,
I pace alone.
Through a forgotten orbit
out of desperation
for the familiar,
in loyalty to a rhythm
I cannot comprehend,
a millennium at a time.
You are born, and in that
instant my comet heart hears
the first notes of our song
and sets course for Earth.
By the power of dream
ice is exchanged for bone.
Stardust settles into green eyes.
Still it takes me 27 years
to move this body
I'm about to jump into the canal and pull her to safety when I stop at the edge of the towpath.
What if I do nothing... ?
