Orion’s Cradle 3:52

Esthetically close in the cosmic dust
means consumed, stellar winds blowing flowing
from Blake’s dream his verse explains our eon first
swimming Orion’s nebula, adrift floating our
formative years in the stellar nursery, wind crazed

Esthetically close in the cosmic dust
means    consumed,   stellar winds blowing       flowing
from Blake’s dream        his verse explains our eon       first
swimming           Orion’s nebula     adrift          floating      our
formative years in the stellar nursery,       wind crazed
fast as the stellar wind runs       SHOCK gas front like

bow waves, or horses      whose muscular thighs like dolphins pull taut to form
Vision one           or the aural spark, supersonic arc shoots   Ori’s cosmic bow    Let Go-
half a light year silent flight     still traveling
graceful                hot bright cluster             Trapezium still flowing

flying         fluid fluvial stardust roiling      becoming    becomes      cradle
formative almost      here    with  shock front
bowl to hold           our

nebulous                                            birth.
