Winter Soltice With J. Kepler


we’re deeply in

in as deeply as we get
before we spin again
round an ellipse’s rim
to a more congenial spot
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 change Pandora’s voice,
I move on linking
new music to my thinking
by simply clicking
because of what 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 benefit
that will be here in half a year
as they will not be for globe-mates
in the southern hemisphere,
I think there will be foxglove
and hydrangea when Kepler’s laws
begin to whirl us back again
