telescope

i am going to buy a telescope,
to nurse this nagging
this developed questioning,
within.

it etches me on the inside,
turns my blood into water,
turns me into glaciers,
into meteor craters.

in serene blackness i will
cruise and seek them out,
the stars, and the planets
and the great gasses.

for there will be answers,
sure, from with and without,

i will train my weary eyes,
on the farthest expanse,
of the waning sky.

i will consider death,
and consider life,
and go back inside,
to warmth, to dry,
unable to carry the weight

but i’ll try, and will surely learn,
in time.
