The signal sings, Cast out through the vacuum.
Distress in the feed, Houston repeat.
They see the sun rise on the back of the beast,
carrier of light. Houston repeat.
The shadow of a colossal entity descending
into hydrogen seas, as it dives into the deep
all colour recedes. Rotation has stopped,
Jupiter is lost.
The force of expanse, singing the harmonies
of doom, cracks the glass as the vacuum
screams their names; and the harmoniums sing:
'Stare at the faintest star earthling and
feel how heavy your limbs are growing.'
