Redshifted Telecom Pleiades


Redshifted Telecom Pleiades

Idle air nibbles with
Cold teeth at the warmth
Coming off of
Bodies wandering streets

Frosted telecom jungles
Canopy the intersections
And the skyline above
Shines through the wires

Red blinking alpine lightning
Rods warn aircraft of low
Altitude treetop masts as
Towerkilling Pleiades can

Orient the avians
To high-strung cables
Tangled wires like branches
Just above the sidewalks

Yet much further up
Stand these reaching masts
With blinking red tower
Lights at their tips like

Parallaxed redshifted Pleiades

In an endless sea of stars
Of grey
And black
And tower concrete
