Gonna Touch the Sky

Kanye West
has already failed

at both his husbandly
and professional duties.

Astronomers have discovered
a dwarf star so cool

that its carbon
has crystallized

giving the 11-billion-year-old
frustratingly elusive

celestial bauble
a dazzling diamond-like radiance

(which Kanye can neither
wrest from the sky
nor morphologically emulate)

when viewed by us
earth-bound mortals.

But don't worry

it will "let him finish"
whatever little project
he has going on right now.
