the bigger the moon, the smaller the earth

According to theosophists and UFO buffs,
erratic movements of some cyclists and lawn mowers clearly show that
they are just heavily transformed drops of mercury
from ancient thermometers, now set free.
As you surely know, these cheap mystics like to jam
that kind of gaudy bullshit into your head, and I do too.
But children still daydream about twisted metal rods on construction sites
which threaten heavens with unseemly renovations
and remind raccoons and coyotes of the pierced guts.
It’s the songs of naiads and alligators in the sewers
that hopelessly distort messages from outer space.
However, you can enjoy Saturnian wine much more
when you are here, far away from Saturn.
