Pacific Melt

File:Cluster M15.jpg

Wild form, deep form, form out of the
Arabic night

God your conspicuous discrete
desert stars are trucks of light
on very distant highway 101's
over which
I am hitchhiking tonight

The waves feathering out in ink
beyond Obispo, toward Conception
toward Surf, a black like blue
jello out of Jules Verne's star-bowls

the world a crushed grape to
someone on Betelgeuse
