The Prophecy of Waves

A poem about celestial science

In America, all the TV’s are on,
electromagnetic waves
rippling through living rooms
and laundromats, hospitals and bars,
communicating, always communicating,
lighting up windows with a flickering blue.
Tonight it’s wolves arguing
over who wears the best disguise,
whose voice can sound the most human,
when most ears couldn’t tell the difference.
