Of Time and the Nebulous

Someday, they say,

stars will stop



hydrogen and


helium gone.

Someday, each


star will call it

a day & go to bits.


Someday the day

will be as dark as


night, the hydrogen,

the helium snuffed.


Someday, in, oh, say,

ten billion billion years,


time will eddy & stop.

Someday deep will


call to deep with

nothing here at all.


Someday here will be

empty like there,


in, oh, say ten billion

billion years . . .


So off we go to

corral the OK.


Off we go to

fish for the net.


Off we go, a link

in the unchained.


Off we go to someday.
