Stars decide


All the stars are coming to
Leaving from the earth

The ones that are coming listen to stories from the stars that are leaving as they pass in the sky

It is from these stories that the” coming to earth ” stars decide what they will be

It is very hard for them to discern what they hear as they only have the cold void of space and its dust to build upon

The less daring ones become mosquitoes or fruit flies so that they can hurry back into space

Many become doorknobs ,resistors and pork and beans and such just because they get nervous and confused as the earth looms closer – they make frantic decision just to settle the matter

Some of the cte stars become rocks and stones and mountains just to settle down into something mildly familiar

If you could rise up into the atmosphere you could hear them talk
You could help them
you could stop them from becoming ear wax or rust

They just keep coming
And they just keep going
and from
The earth
