Cold Solstice with J. Kepler

.
we’re deeply in—
in as deeply as we get
before we spin again
round an ellipse’s rimStonehenge soltice
to a more congenial place
for blood and breath

(what the astronomical
survival odds
……….. our outer limits
are, who knows?
for time is short
by last report)

listening now to ersatz jazz
I modify Pandora’s voice
—I move on, linking
new music to my thinking
by simply clicking
because of all the tricks our
technos know

—which is obviously permanent
and, like serious snow,
is sticking

in this marvelous,
magnetic, angular hour
when sun and earth
seek a new relation,
and we anticipate
the max benefits
that will be here
in merely half a year

(as they will not be
for globe-mates in the
southern hemisphere)

there will be foxglove and hydrangea
….. when
Kepler”s laws revive the sun a-
….. gain
