The MetacollectorThe Metacollector
Dale was a collector, though he wouldn't let on. He wasn't the type to show off his collection or to list collecting among his hobbies. Even if you laid eyes on his collection, it's unlikely you'd understand what you were seeing. Normal people collect coins or stamps; even a seemingly absurd collection like dried gourds in the shape of celebrities has a theme that anyone could easily observe. Not Dale's. To anyone else, it would appear a random assortment of junk: a salt shaker without its matching pepper, a hideous Christmas ornament (a bizarre rendition of Santa whose inexplicably red eyes would frighten most children), a copy of the unsuccessful Sega Genesis game Greendog the Beached Surfer Dude. Most collectors in some way like the objects they collect; some prefer the more objective measure of market value. Neither of these considerations, however, mattered to Dale. He didn't especially like the objects, and while some had market value, like a worn copy of Fa
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…

We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
