In this ghost town galaxy
We are an overlapping stellar system
Oddly paired and blissfully unaware
Of imminent full collapse

My skin is electric
I can no longer feel my arms or legs
But I know now what it's like to swim
Through a blackened space

You move with ninety proof courage
And it permeates the stale air in
Rainforest waves that linger
And settle in your wake

Our discordant dance
Quells this hyperbolic world
In which existence persists
With such spectacular earnest

The hydrogen fog will consume us, and
We'll reluctantly accept our mortality
But right now? In this moment?
I've never felt more alive
