Cosmic Impulse

Haworth Hodgkinson

 

Hurtling through space
at wanton speed,
I, a comet, swerve,
attracted by strange
and beautiful worlds.

A small blue planet
enters my view.

Curious, I venture closer,
but the smouldering stench
of unfathomable decadence
appals my icy heart
and my attentions
turn elsewhere.
