A Comet's Tale

Through the freeze of Pluto
and the heat of Mercury,
beyond the breeze of  Saturn
and the scream of Mars
in the shadow of Jupiter’s dreams
and the lost hopes of Venus;
through, beside and ignorant of them all,
in a constant flight from reflection —
the comet heads for the outer planets,
hopes there the solitude may redeem
the failures that streak behind,
a tail of woe.
