This Time

This time will be different

The stars have aligned

Though I look through darkened glass

At cosmic forces in motion

But I’m sure

Yes, I’m sure

The clouds have swept aside

To reveal everything 

The moon smiling in broad circles

Of silver promises and altered gravities 

No deep, black holes

I’d see them

So this time

Yes, this time

Everything will be right

Perfect, unique

As though written in hieroglyphs 

For all history to see

We’ll be legend

Hades and Persephone reborn

This time

Yes, this time

Unlike all the rest
