Along about now

Along about now,
A particular group of photons,
Some 2oo million light years away,
Is heading in our direction.

They’re out there.

At the same time,
A delegation is leaving my face,
Bound for cosmic intersection.

After all the debates have passed,
Long after the poor old Earth
Has been wrung free of its
Infection of life

Two photons,
Their memories wiped clean
Will pass in the distant night
As unaware of our anguish
As we are of their fate
