The Messenger


The moon was angry
The broken tusk
Of a black walrus
Martyred in the cosmos

All of the constellations
Pointed arrows
At the whizzing comet
Rogue, fast as light

Plumage white
Nose against the dark
Loneliness of space
Snow-white blood

Leaking into the galaxy
The burden of speed
No star could look away
For disgust or envy

The comet blew against
The archer's bow
The sharp horns of Taurus
Bent like scimitars

And Venus sat whimpering
In some star-less corner
Nursing her wounds
And licking the dark
