There are ashes on the moon, I bet:
left over from the ancients!
There are ashes on Earth, dancing
in the wind, I’ve seen this.
There are ashes on Mars, red like
—dormant fire…here and there
Everywhere: I’ve seen photographs!
There are ashes on Mercury, hot
and burnt…there has to be (?)
Someday, if you look into my
coffin, you’ll find ashes too!
Ashes—have a long history with
mankind, people, the universe.
The sun, one day will explode,
be sucked into nothingness;
Or perhaps a black hole—
Leaving only ashes and dead gases!
We’ll all start over again, from Ashes?
