Goodnight My Darling Universe

…and finally here’s Day 30, goodnight.

Made of sticks and stones

Interference,
Static hiss,
A hundred different inputs,
A million alien sounds.
When all I’m looking for
Is a simple sign of life,
Intelligent or not.
Carried on the ether
Across the universe.
A flickering beacon
Firelight tale
Told to a child.
Tucked up between the covers,
Not digitised or pixelated
With tie-in merchandise,
No static hiss
Nor interference
Just once upon a time.
