The Cosmic Show

TheDeckerEdgeMatt Decker

Grab a seat,

Nestle and chill.

This Ceres will please

And even thrill.

*

The stage was raised

In a faraway age.

*

If you care to make the climb

Into the spaceship of your mind

We will traverse with a burst --

The finds will be sublime.

*

First a BOOM!

Then a BLAST!

Past the moon

Light-speed fast.

*

Among the stars we will trek,

Gravity behind our back --

Look! Home is but a speck.

*

Off we go

To The Show

That's far superior

To the interior

Of that blue rock below.

*

Above the stuff,

Beyond the yawn:

Radiance of

Alien dawn.

*

Let go of terrestrial,

Let's go to celestial.

*

Intergalactic,

Enter Galactic --

It's matchless magic.

*

A span outside the span

Of man to understand.

*

It took a minute to make

And the action isn't fake.

*

Far reach and vast:

A star-studded cast.

*

On the Grand Director's screen:

Characters you've never seen.

*

Treasures of neon

Measured in eons.

*

Advanced expanse,

Stars that dance.

*

Galleries of galaxies,

Odyssey of oddity.

What next?

Planet X

Or E.T.s @ Gala Z?

*

The golden glow of olden globes

Dwarfs our Earth's brightest shows.

*

We are findin'

Worlds of diamonds.

*

Sparked by sparkles to linger

Like diamonds on a finger.

*

Starin' @ Saturn's pattern:

Rings like wings

Zing with bling

And seem to sing.

*

Enormous forces in orbit

That force us toward euphoric --

Let us just absorb it.

*

Through a swirl and whirl

We reach a new world:

Days are

Lit by lasers.

Those rays are

From quasars.

*

A sun like none before it --

A portrait unrecorded.

*

Oh the places with faces!

Traces of Space's races.

*

See the beings?

A sea of beings.

*

Beastly species,

Speechless species.

*

Featured creatures:

Alien creatures

With

Radiant features.

*

Epic entities,

Entities of energies.

*

Androids ride asteroids

In this astro void.

*

Back home,

What's on?

A tale of comedy.

Up here,

What flares?

The tail of Comet D.

*

A stellar performance --

Colorful! Enormous!

*

Humans tune in

To illusion.

Hocus-pocus

Holds our focus.

*

In a place

Where faces race

To the base

There's a grace

When faces raise

To amazing Space.

*

There's recovery

In discovery.

*

Spotlight,

Limelight --

Not quite

So bright.

Right?

*
