thin flames underneath my skin prickle and spark,
a rush of blood booms in my ears, and then my eyes go dark.”

THE MILK OF HUMAN KINDNESS

 

“Billions of years from now our sun,
then a distended red giant star,
will have reduced Earth to a charred cinder.
But the Voyager record will still be largely intact,
in some other remote region of the Milky Way galaxy,
preserving a murmur of an ancient civilization that once flourished.”
