5 billion years too early the Sun

They say is evaporating oceans

Beneath the APEC ersatz blue, I run

Nitrogen air,

Venus stalled in motion.

 

The swollen star, 

Blood-red as it dies

When the thermonuclear fuel is gone

(Mercury, moons and the Earth vaporise)

Dust, gas

 

A dead black dwarf

Where once it shone.

 

Violet, sunsets, memories, illusions

- Now they keep control with a lethal force.

Neptune could be a new home for humans

With some terraforming, of course.

 

Luminous planetary nebulae drift

Disperse and fade to another night shift.
