Fresh From the "Way Back Machine"

Ok,be honest. Do you get the "Way Back Machine" reference? If you do, then we share more than a few things. Anyway: today is a poem that dates back to 1976. I remember writing this after a long, late night car ride spent watching the moon as the car pressed on into the night.

I don't say it's good....but here it is:

Revolutions of blinding speed
Create the silent movement of
An invisible object

Rocks standing with daggers pointed
Invisible objects hidden in the heavens

Blazing incandescence
Of a million flaming orbs
That light the pathways to the stars

The precise ordered movements of an arm
In its predestined path
Towards a predestined point of destruction.
