I come as a comet, trailing particles
of light, broken pieces, my early symmetry
shattered, arch of heaven curved
over an expanse of sea blue, symbol
sparkling diadem, derivative of inclination
tangent of the hour, my arcís length
appearing, suspended to oversee
the impatience of the ocean, the world
at war or peace, set in motion, a sign
from the stars, I measure the beginning
to the end, my daily duty, coordinates to record.
I move about the sun in an eccentric orbit
showers of meteors flash away from me
my disintegration timed, earthís hourglass
a lyric memoir, esoteric moments
poems, written in the stellar heat of life.
