The stars chime in
singing the end of the universe as we know it
the unbroken sphere shatters into pieces
no mind-to-mind, we shout with photons
but my sister, we grow apart
I don't know you anymore
receding so fast you are gone forever.

And now, stars
cool flickers of our broken unity
but all that's left of natal heat
signaling lonely in the dark
while some mewling thing
cold and soft, slow and blind
waits to be born.
