The Light, the Dark, and the Dust

There’s a little melted snow,
Water in the gutter by
The highway wayside. Passing

Swiftly, you can glimpse the sky
As if it were fixed, the clouds
Flickering one reflection.

A photograph of night skies
Taken through a telescope
Is titled, The Light, the Dark,

And the Dust. For once, the dust
Has nothing to do with Earth.

Electroweak, however
Gravity ties into it,
Skies collapsing, skies tearing

Themselves apart, reflections
In a meltwater puddle
On a wayside, in passing.
