Almost Funny

Lying in bed in the 
Liquid silence - shrouded 
Darkness before dawn-come-light
There are stars (a little blurred
Without my contact lenses) I watch
Floating in the sky.
Wish we could go visit them
In our lifetimes, wish we would live long enough.
Maybe on alien worlds
In the light of alien suns
We could be what, here, we could never be.
That we’re going to die out
Long before infinity.
And it would be almost funny -
Death by aerosol can
Death by SUV.
