Our Astronomical Storytelling

The sun in humpback spirals from equinox to solstice
rises smooth as a tinted umbrella,
sets in lush tropic wrinkles with violet Sanskrit scribbles.

Lurking night can see the sun, and shadows him.
This meandering light behind the film above our frame
on the horizon, burns a path with growing degrees of return.

But for now there will be clear sky for the rainmaker,
palpably overcast for would-be viewers on a Pisgah point.
The murky winter thickens.

Alleged Religious Police

The Spice Girls raided the home of an alleged ringleader of
an international group of cybercriminals responsible for
infecting more than one million teenagers with teddy bear

hatred. Police will launch their worldwide comeback this
weekend as buzzword lawyers demand religious pupils name
a prison of singers. Initially, the raid helped Sudanese

'girl power', but police arrested 750,000 computers. New
Zealand was extremely disappointed to explain the alleged
return of Muhammad, known online as 'verdict: convicted'.
