TRANSLATOR OF STARS

My old ancestor
with a snake on his shoulders,
the translator of the stars,
had his face dug up
to another realm.
He was somewhere at the frontier
of the observable universe,
in the fantastic empire of a flea
carrying tons of iron.

I felt his indifferent look
at the immaterial rustle
of my complicated ship.

Sorry, he said,
you could come on foot.
You would have understood
mountains and valleys,
and the seconds on the starry stones.
But now go back,
share your planet,
and tell them that
we can live here
only in Gaias mind
and in the childrens thoughts.
