Star to Star (A Binary Proposal)
. To wish upon you in my way
new risen star I’d say:
. “Let us relentlessly perturb each other
….dance in our decay and glow
……..in throbbing Roche-lobe overflow
until one spins six hundred times per second
….. ……while the other turns to stone. .
Please radio without surcease
… if I congeal into that giant diamond
send out all your sorrow, all your joy
. And should you grow cold first
….. I’ll linger for a billion years to hold you
letting anyone who listens
feel.the jump you give my pulse.”
Hooting sounds have been emanating from the woods, nightly, for a few weeks now. I took them to be coming from an owl, but had some trouble finding a recording that matched what I was hearing. I found a good match last night, and tonight the tune changed, with TWO owls conversing in the language linked under this picture.

Weight of the game pieces:
Wheels…..120 lbs. each
Gun barrel….900 lbs.
my parting soul,
have you slipped from the fingers
of a child?
