Heaven Immutable


Heaven immutable

Is shown in a pretty postcard,

An electric vision,

Remote and twisting

Like a corkscrew

Through the great spiral

Of Andromeda.

One hundred thousand exploding suns,

Or candlelight burning

In a vacant allotment,

The light spinning

Like a roulette wheel,

Gambling with phantom nights,

Filled with mysterious eggs,

Dangerous billard balls,

Atomic reactions,

Clouds of gas.

The nebula

Fills the room,

Startrails show up

On time,

Their exposures

Spinning into the centre

Of the amusement park.
