In solar systems near and far

in between moons and meteor 

around rings of gas and dust

 

Does music play?

 

 

Are there frequencies high or low

whispering the secrets of civilizations long gone

or those of generations just beginning?  

 

Our tireless satellites capture movement,

 

                                                                                                                                 but  

 

Who transcribes the songs from

light years away;   

the lyrics of other worlds? 

 

When we finally find them 

these future tense hieroglyphics

will we be grateful or                                                                                                  terrified? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Language is a virus from outer space
