Homage To Space Dust

Out in the vast darkness the space dust says
this is what I am famous for

no argument here…no need to pass the buck…
I once asked a Mexican who should have known better

but he didn’t savvy…a comet flew by
went back in its cave

the asteroids wearing the same robe
and the same belt…mark that down

for the next gift-giving season
yet the house of space dust none the worst for wear

my rocket ship sharp as a razor blade
its nose thawing out

the vegetation growing in a tank down below
lets go a smile

which drops to the floor
and crawls up somebody’s leg
