So I used the book titles from Day 9.
News From Another Star
Recent news has arrived from another star
like tremors we have felt its effect
both above and below
but we will not speak of such things
we will not spend our lives trying to crack code
or decipher dialect.
What can we learn or unlearn?
a gesture done or not done
notes towards a love song.
A see you later
or was it goodbye?
The Egyptians left sculptured hieroglyphics like a watermark
you have been laid to rest as images on my chest.
But do not speak of it,
do not speak of it.
There is a waste land out there
Look up, the sky road is ours
and it's broad and deep.
