    the story of pluto

    far off the solar system,
    an constant tendency
    to drift off, to lead onto divergence,
    as his older friends remain,
    existing in patches
    and in pints of lucid sorrow.
    one of his bigger friends
    called Jupiter said
    'you will have to float
    in absolute nothingness
    before you could feel complete',
    although, he's been a barren sphere,
    a blasphemy to the children of sun;
    it took him the entirety of his lifetime
    that he couldn't be a part
    of the solar flare.

    a quiet and subtle ending
    to a celestial existence,
    lost in the warp
    of time,
    is him, often regarded
    as the Dwarf.
