Andromeda rushing our way

Andromeda is rushing toward us

Like an assassin’s bullet

And will wrench into fragments

Any thoughts of how it used to be

On the roller coaster, say, by the sea

Looking out at waves coming in

At only a fraction of the speed.

We have been warned by

Pestering meteors, comets,

And our pock-marked moon,

But looking out we can’t see

Them with our naked eye,

The pathological damage,

And so believe in a peace

That in our time shall prevail

A wonderful mystical state,

And though it has never been

It is our belief – even though

Someone this very instant is planting

An IED for our unsuspecting feet:

And will spin them off in flashes of light.
