I will rock in my rocker
until the last comet knocks me out,
knitting together past, present, future
in one fabric
to cover us
when the cold becomes unbearable
in the cosmic night.
Some say I have lived too long.
Others say Time is always fresh.
The rocker rocks.
I laugh at all their thoughts.
I have seen enough
more light years
