Space Rock (2/7)

2/7 in my line of Beer-name inspired poems. This one is an IPA from Short’s Brewing Company up in Bellaire, Michigan.

The stars relented
acknowledging the futility
of their attempt.
Their words meant something
when combined together
a collective chorus
that could be described as
definitely far more
than the sum of its parts.

No matter how impassioned
falling on deaf
mostly unwilling
unable ears
was something even they
could not compensate for.

At this distance
The breath-taking whole
of their combined lights
became just as futile.

At best they could count on
being noticed
when the sky was clearest
the moon darkest
and even then
for no more than a moment.
