Death of a Comet


Pretty, typical comet's end
NASA/CHANDRA/CASEY LISSE

Discovery news, July 16, 2014:  When the “Comet of the Century” died to a solar roasting last year, the world was sad. Hopes of a beautiful cometary display rapidly evaporated as space observatories relayed images of the once-proud dirty snowball become a pulverized cloud of sublimating ice and scattered dust.]

That we continue
to live, 
In the face of
now silent,
now brutal,
now boring,
death.
While
those 
in 
the 
realm 
of 
angels
continue to smile. 
While,
we, 
here,
in this in between
realm 
of cruel
tests 
of 
love,
wait to 
exhale.
