You see, I am no comet with a blazing tail
that made the ancient seafarers deviate
from their course, set before the voyage began.
The glow of ice and dust entailing me
is nothing but my solar memory being burned!
I am neither a planet nor one of those stars,
shining like diamond grains across the sky,
belying the void of light years between them.
The glow of gas and dust enshrouding me
is just my solar memory set in flames!
